    Olson did most of his damage in a 3-for-5 performance in the nightcap.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Sets franchise record

    Olson's home run during Saturday's win over the Marlins was his 52nd of the season, setting a new franchise record for Atlanta, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Andruw Jones held the old record of 51, which he set in 2005. Olson leads the majors this season in both homers and RBI (129), and the biggest obstacle to him winning the NL MVP Award in 2023 could be the historic numbers put up by teammate Ronald Acuna (calf), who sits three long balls short of the first 40-60 season in baseball history.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Goes deep again Tuesday

    Olson went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Phillies.

    The 29-year-old slugger was at it again Tuesday, launching a solo shot of Zack Wheeler in the fourth inning. The homer was Olson's 51st on the campaign, tying Atlanta's franchise record, which was set by Andruw Jones in 2005. Olson is now seven clear of Pete Alonso and Shohei Ohtani for the MLB lead in long balls, while Atlanta is on the cusp of clinching an NL East title.

    Olson went 2-for-3 with a walk and three RBI in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Pirates.

    With the pair of base knocks, Olson closed out the weekend with his fifth multi-hit effort in a row.
