Braves sweep Nationals for 14th straight win; return to action Friday in Chicago. Listen on Thunder Radio

Some in baseball say momentum is only as good as the next day’s starting pitcher. Some say momentum isn’t a thing at all. But when you haven’t lost all month and your next day’s starter throws 100 mph, you tend to take the field feeling like it’s on your side.

Atlanta’s 8-2 victory over the Nationals extended the longest win streak in the Majors...

Braves keep rolling with 13th straight win

If losing their All-Star second baseman to injury the night before fazed the Braves, they sure didn’t show it in the hours leading up to their Tuesday game against the Nationals. Then they took the field knowing they’d be without Ozzie Albies for a significant stretch, really for the first time, and just kept on rolling. Atlanta didn’t miss a beat in extending its MLB-best 13-game win streak, socking five more homers en route to a decisive 10-4 victory at Nationals Park. The Braves’ 13-game streak is the longest in the Majors this season, the club’s longest since the 2013 team reeled off...
