How Bout Them BRAVES?

August 22, 2011 8:56am (EDT)

The Atlanta Braves, fresh off their sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks, are in Chicago for a four game series with the Cubs. The Braves have won 13 out of their last 17 games, and finished 7-3 during a just completed season high 10 game homestand at Turner Field. Atlanta appears poised for their second straight shot at the postseason. They currently have an 8 game lead over San Francisco for the wildcard spot. Braves Manager Freddi Gonzalez, third baseman Chipper Jones, and catcher Brian McCann discuss the 3 game sweep of Arizona and the upcoming 4 games against the Chicago Cubs in Wrigley Field.
