The Atlanta Braves haven’t lost a game this season. Well to any other team except for the Phillies. Home runs have been the key to their season so far leading the majors with 25 helping their 12-1 record.
New acquisition, Justin Upton, has been driving the dinger effort with 8 homers of his own. (We’ll ignore the season his brother is having for now.) Last night, Upton helped extend the Braves lead in the 8th with his 8th homer of the young season.

There were 25 home runs last night. Colorado Rockies Carlos Gonzalez hit the longest at 446 feet, according to hittrackeronline. Kansas City Royals Kelvin Herrera was tagged for three gopherballs last night. Ouch.
