Justin Upton continues hot streak Sunday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Upton finished 2 for 3, with two runs scored and two RBI. He's collected 16 hits over his last eight games.

Change in pregame routine benefiting Justin Upton
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Justin Upton came into Sunday's game vs. Washington having produced three hits in three straight games. He's batting .818 (9 for 11) with two doubles, three home runs, six RBI and six runs in that span.

Upton's recent surge has come on the heels of him switching his pregame routine. Upton is no longer going through the flip drill. He has limited his pregame work to taking regular batting practice and swings off a stationary batting tee.

"I looked at him the other night after he hit two home runs and said, 'Hey, [assistant hitting coach Scott Fletcher] is up in the cage if you want to take some flips,'" hitting coach Greg Walker said, per MLB.com. "He said, 'I'm never flipping the rest of my life.'

"He's a bright, analytical guy and he loves the [batting] cage, and he's always in there. So I just think over the years, he has too much stuff [in his head]. He's not letting his God-given gifts take over. My whole goal since the start of spring training has been to make the game easier for him."

Justin Upton breaks out with multi-homer game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Braves outfielder Justin Upton ended his season-opening homerless drought in a big way Thursday, taking Mets starter Jenrry Mejia deep twice in a 6-4 loss.

Upton homered in consecutive innings of Mejia, clubbing a solo shot in the second and then driving in two with his third-inning home run. He added a single later in the game to finish 3 for 4 with three RBI and two runs scored in the loss.

Upton entered Thursday's game without an extra-base hit or RBI, so he finally got on the board in both categories. He is hitting just .265/.324/.441 through nine games.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
