This is much more fun than earlier in the season
The Braves have won seven straight now and that is quite fun. The combination of a healthy Ronald Acuna Jr. and the presence of Michael Harris II have been tremendous catalysts during this streak, turning the outfield defense from a liability to an asset, creating offense on the basepaths, lengthening the lineup, and injecting the team with energy. It sure helps that they have had a relatively soft stretch of the schedule, and that is going to continue for the next ten games, so let’s hope they can keep stacking wins.
