Braves Tied League Record for Home Run Games
For the third night in a row, Atlanta Braves first baseman Andres Galarraga hit a home run in a 5-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. For the 24th game in a row, the Braves hit at least one home run. This tied a National League record set in 1953 by the Brooklyn Dodgers and pushed the Braves within one game of the Major League record.
