Braves Tied Franchise Record for Home Runs
Andres Galarraga, Andruw Jones, Javier Lopez, and Ryan Klesko hit home runs to give the Atlanta Braves an 8-5 home win over the San Diego Padres. The home run derby also was the 22nd consecutive game in which the Braves hit at least one home run - which tied the Braves franchise record set in 1953. This brought the Braves within two games of the National League record and three games of the Major League record for most consecutive games in which a home run is hit.
