Braves kings of the road
Posted on: June 13, 2010 7:11 pm
Even before the Braves' 7-3 victory over the Twins, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien noted the first-place Braves have played more road games at this point than any team in baseball with 39 of their 64 games played away from Turner Field.
What makes it more interesting is that the Braves have the best home winning percentage in baseball (.760). The Braves were 6-5 on a season-long 11-game roadtrip and will return home for three games against one of the American League's best teams (Tampa Bay) and one of the AL's worst (Royals).
The Braves currently have a nine-game home winning streak as the 0-8 Kenshin Kawakami draws David Price in the first game of the Braves' series against the Rays on Tuesday.
