9– the number of times in their past 10 games that the Braves have gone without a home run.
They hit three homers in span of four batters in the ninth and 10th innings of their memorable 4-3 win against the Phillies on April 20: a two-run shot by Troy Glaus followed by a tying homer by Jason Heyward to force extra innings, then a game-ender by Nate McLouth to start the 10th.
And that’s it. Those are the only home runs the Braves have hit in their past 10 games. They have totaled 21 runs in that 10-game stretch, including 13 runs during their current seven-game losing streak.
For the season, the Braves have hit 12 home runs in 20 games. Only the Astros have hit fewer in the National League.
