Add two more players to the list of Braves players starting to swing a hot bat.
Melky Cabrera had two more hits Sunday to extend his hitting streak to nine games. Yunel Escobar went 3-for-5, his first three-hit game of the season and first since Sept. 10, 2009.
“Escobar is starting to go … and Melky has had some nice ball games,” Braves manager Bobby Cox said.
During his nine-game hit streak, Cabrera is hitting .433 (13-for-30).
Escobar is hitting .368 (7-for-19) in his last five games, including three multi-hit games.
