Streaking Braves finding different ways to win

The Braves, finding new ways to create runs, have regained the lead in the NL East with their best two-week stretch of the season.

ATLANTA (AP) — The Braves, finding new ways to create runs, have regained the lead in the NL East with their best two-week stretch of the season.

That's especially notable because during that period starting pitcher Gavin Floyd had season-ending elbow surgery and power-hitting catcher Evan Gattis was lost for an unknown time period with a back injury.

The Braves, off on Thursday, will carry a seven-game winning streak into Friday night's game against Arizona. Atlanta has won 11 of its last 14 games to move one-half game ahead of Washington.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez says he has seen the Braves play as well in a series, but not over a stretch as long as two weeks. He is encouraged that his lineup is proving it doesn't have to rely on homers.
