253 — number of games the Braves went without a grand slam before Martin Prado hit one off Brewers lefty Manny Parra in an 8-2 win on Monday night.
The Braves went more than 8,600 at-bats between grand slams, since Brian McCann hit one off Philadelphia’s Brad Lidge on July 25, 2008. The Angels were the only other team that didn’t hit a grand slam in 2009.
The streak by the Braves had been the longest active streak in the majors, and by a wide margin. The next-longest belonged to Kansas City, with 136 consecutive slam-free games before Monday.
