Braves extend winning streak to 11 with home run barrage against Pirates

USATSI

The Atlanta Braves were 23-27 heading into June. They are now 11-0 in the month. The most current triumph came Sunday in Truist Park over the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-3. The 11-game winning streak is among the most respected in Braves history. We’ll get to that in a 2nd. 

Sunday, Kyle Wright created a quality start prior to the bullpen trio of Will Smith, A.J. Minter and Kenley Jansen closed the door. Offensively, the Braves were homer pleased. Their 5 runs began 3 solo shots and a two-run homer. 

William Contreras and Adam Duvall went back-to-back to get the scoring begun in the 2nd. 

Duvall’s 2nd homer of the video game was the two-run task in the 4th, and Matt Olson included insurance coverage in the 8th with a solo shot. 

There have actually formerly been 6 streaks of a minimum of 11 wins in Braves franchise history, with the most current being a 14-game winning streak in 2013. The record is 15, which occurred April 16 through May 2 in 2000. That Braves group was the safeguarding NL champ and went on to win 95 video games. 

This Braves group is, naturally, the safeguarding World Series champ. They were 10 1/2 video games out of top place when the winning streak began and got it cut to 5 1/2 video games prior to Sunday’s action. The Braves have actually won the NL East 4 straight seasons. 

They now take the 11-game winning streak on the roadway versus 2 substandard challengers. Atlanta will play the Washington Nationals 3 times in D.C. beginning Monday prior to playing the Chicago Cubs 3 times in Wrigley Field Friday through Sunday. The franchise record winning streak is within their sights.
