The art of the celebration.

Your one-page daily morning overview of Atlanta Braves news:

Braves postgame quotes following Sunday’s win over LA | Atlanta Braves
Martin Prado, on game-winner: "I’ve been struggling the last couple weeks and to me, this is huge. I’m not worried about me, I’m just worried about helping the team to win. Getting the hit to not get swept by the Dodgers was a pretty good feeling for me."

Freeman gets day off to rest his quad | News
"The quad is the thing that worries me a little bit," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "It's one of those things that, for him to get personally healed, it's going to be 30 days. But if we can manage it, give him a day off after a night game ... I think we'll get through it."

Braves activate Moylan from disabled list | News
"I don't know if you saw my first tweet this morning, but it was about 7:30," Moylan said. "I haven't woken up at 7:30 on my own in a long time. Take that for what you will. Maybe it's excitement, maybe it's nerves, I don't know."

Wilson draws tough assignment in first Braves start | Atlanta Braves
"I almost wanted to look at their third base coach and say ‘Hey, if you’ve got anything let me know,’" said Wilson, who has played 1,232 games at short, 45 at second and now two at third. "Just making sure I’m in the right spots and before the pitch is made. It ended up working out today. I was happy to be out there. We were 0-2 since I got here, so I was getting a little nervous."

Braves call up speedy outfielder Richardson | News
Double-A Mississippi outfielder Antoan Richardson thought he was heading to Triple-A Gwinnett when Mississippi manager Rocket Wheeler called him at a pizza place in Raleigh, N.C. "[He] told me to see him in his room ASAP," he recalled. "He told me Gwinnett had two games last night, so I had to get on a plane at six in the morning. He's like, 'You're going to get a taxi and you're going to have to drive over to the stadium in Atlanta.'" Richardson was actually heading to the Braves, marking the first time the 27-year-old Vanderbilt University graduate has been with the big league club.
