Etc.: Prado leads National League in hits

Before Friday, Martin Prado led the National League in hits (62) and led the majors in leadoff on-base percentage (.407). He was 25-for-78 (.321) with three homers, 15 runs and 16 RBI in his past 17 games…. All-Star candidate Jason Heyward was third in the NL in on base-plus-slugging percentage at .978, trailing the Phillies’ Jayson Werth (.996) and the Cubs’ Alfonso Soriano (.990)…. The Braves are 7-2 with a 2.57 ERA and 60 runs in their past nine road games, after going 5-14 with a 5.02 ERA and 61 runs in their first 19…. Atlanta had a league-high .399 OBP with runners in scoring position, and a league-high .379 OBP in the late innings of close games.  … Former Braves pitcher Charlie Morton was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder fatigued by the Pirates before Friday’s game. Braves minor-league pitcher Mike Minor had eight strikeouts for Double-A Mississippi on Thursday to raise his season total to 80.

He should just go ahead and quit do you remember who he tried at leadoff ? Melky “automatic out” Cabrera who has a career OBP of 330
