"The Braves have played ten straight games against teams that, to use the technical term, can’t hit. They allowed 30 runs in those ten games, three or fewer in seven of them, and won every one of them. Throw in a shutout win in Phoenix on June 1 against the Diamondbacks, who rank 25th in wRC+, and the Braves have allowed 30 runs in their 11-game winning streak, cutting the Mets’ NL East lead in half."
