48-18 – Braves’ home record, the best in the majors by a significant margin.
After pounding the Mets 9-2 on Tuesday for their fourth consecutive win at Turner Field, the Braves have a stunning .728 winning percentage in home games this season, and four more wins than the next-highest home-wins total (Yankees are 44-22).
The Braves lost four of their first nine home games in April, but since April 30 they have a 43-14 record and 3.01 ERA at Turner Field. In that same period on the road, the Braves are 26-27 with a 3.80 ERA.
They’ve won the first two games of this week’s four-game series with the Mets, assuring at least a split. The Braves have lost only one of their 22 home series this season, when they dropped two of three games against Philadelphia April 20-22.
The Braves led the Phillies by 3-1/2 games before the conclusion of the Phillies’ late game at Los Angeles on Wednesday. Atlanta and Philly will close the season with a three-game series at Turner Field Oct. 1-3.
