23 – Troy Glaus’ National League-leading RBI total in May.
Atlanta’s first baseman has hit .320 (31-for-97) with four homers and 23 RBIs in 26 games in May.
This comes after Glaus hit .194 with two homers and nine RBIs in 23 games in April, when he was booed during several home games in his first month with the Braves. He missed most of the 2009 season with St. Louis while recovering from shoulder surgery, then signed with Atlanta as a free agent.
Glaus is 17-for-42 (.405) with 11 RBIs in 11 home games in May, after hitting .125 (4-for-32) with two RBIs in 10 home games in April.
The Braves have won nine of 11 home games in May, batting .312 while averaging 6.4 runs per game in those 11. They will go for a home-series sweep of the Pirates on Sunday in their last game of what’s been a turnaround month for the Braves.
