Two streaks came to an end today. The most important being the Braves nine game winning streak. The other being BJ Upton’s 11 game hitting streak. I am sure Joe DiMaggio‘s family is relieved to stop following the Braves around waiting on BJ to break the record.
Congrats to Freddie Freeman, Julio Teheran, and Craig Kimbrel on their much deserved All-Star selections. Justin Upton is on the ballot for the last spot. Here is the link so you can go vote him in. Having to watch his brother’s historic streak end is cause enough to want to send him to the game.
The Braves close out the first half against the Mets and what’s left of the Cubs.
