19-for-123 – Braves’ hitting with runners in scoring position over 13 games through Thursday.
That’s an almost unfathomable .154 average with RISP during that 6-7 stretch that included an nine-game road trip that ended Sunday and four games on the current homestand.
After going 3-for-24 in those situations during losses Saturday and Sunday at Cincinnati, the Braves then went 3-for-24 again over the first two games against the Mets Monday and Tuesday.
Next was a 1-for-9 with RISP in Wednesday’s 8-3 win against the Mets, and an 0-for-6 in Thursday’s 3-2 win against the Giants.
That means the Braves have won consecutive games and scored 11 runs in the past two nights despite going 1-for-15 with runners in scoring position.
