B.J. Upton homers in loss to Dodgers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Braves center fielder B.J. Upton hasn't been getting many hits lately - his last multi-hit game was achieved on July 31 - but two of his most recent ones have traveled out of the park.

Upton slugged his second home run in four games Tuesday against the Dodgers. He drilled a solo job in the fourth inning. But he still only has four hits in his last 31 at-bats.

B.J. Upton finally goes deep in defeat of Nationals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Braves had been waiting since June 24 for B.J. Upton to hit a home run. They are waiting no longer.

An inning after his brother Justin got Atlanta off on the right foot against Washington on Friday night with a two-run blast, B.J. followed suit to end a 1-for-17 slide. Upton is still crawling along with a stat line of .212/.281/.333.

B.J. Upton absent from Monday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Braves leadoff hitter and center fielder B.J. Upton is grabbing some pine for the Monday afternoon game against visiting San Diego. Jordan Schafer is set to start in both spots instead.

Upton has been solid and consistent since moving to the top of the order. He has been particularly productive lately with seven hits and seven runs scored in the last six games.

B.J. Upton justifying placement into leadoff spot
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The hunch of Fredi Gonzalez to hoist B.J. Upton into the leadoff position for the Braves was criticized by many, but has proven to be justified. Upton has thrived in that spot.

Upton owns a 10-game hitting streak. And though he managed just one hit in nine of those games, his average has creeped up from .202 and .211. More importantly, he has scored eight runs in that period. His two hits and stolen base keyed a Friday defeat of Arizona.

"Hopefully, I'll keep coming," he told MLB.com. "Whether it's drawing a walk or getting a hit, my job is to get on base for the guys behind me. That's the way it's been working for the last week or so."
