The Braves have now won 13 consecutive games

In extending its MLB-best 13-game winning streak, Atlanta didn’t skip a beat, launching five more home runs on the way to a convincing 10-4 win at Nationals Park. The Braves’ 13-game winning streak is the longest in the Majors this season, the club’s longest since the 2013 team went on a 14-game winning run, and it’s tied for third longest in the franchise’s modern existence (since 1900). The Braves of 2000 set a modern-era record by winning 15 consecutive games on their way to the World Series.

This run will undoubtedly come to an end before October, but it has propelled the reigning champion Braves back up the standings after a sluggish start. They haven’t lost in June yet, with their most recent loss coming on May 31 against the D-backs. That spans a whole two weeks without a setback. In that time, they trimmed the Mets’ lead in the National League East from 10 1/2 to 5 games, albeit they were only able to keep up Tuesday when New York beat Milwaukee. The Braves’ latest winning streak was in 1961. It is still too early to predict that this success will last the entire season.
