Heating up? Dan Uggla was 6-for-11 w/ a HR & 2 doubles in NY With offense coming from sources that have been unusually quiet all season–Brian McCann and Dan Uggla–the Braves swept the Mets in Chipper Jones’ final trip to the Big Apple. Accomplishing the sweep mostly on the backs of phenomenal pitching, for the Braves, it felt like old times. Friday night, with Maholm on the mound, the Braves recorded their third consecutive shutout. This feat was last accomplished ten years ago by the Braves, strangely enough on the exact same dates–Sept. 4-7, 2002. In their previous 5 games, they went 4-1 with a 0.60 ERA. Offense was provided by Jason Heyward who blasted a homer in the 4th inning, his 25th on the season, and Dan Uggla who contributed a double and a home run. Maholm pitched 5 1/3 innings with 6 strikeouts. The bullpen, all 5 relievers, contributed 5 strikeouts to the shutout. Atlanta has now won each of Kris Medlen’s past 19 starts going back to May 29, 2010. Medlen’s no earned-runs
