After dropping the first two games of the series, Atlanta came back to win the last two games and avoided losing the series. Things that stood out:
- Jason Heyward continues to look like he's getting back on track. In the four-game series, Heyward tallied a hit in every game and six in total along with three walks.
- The same can't be said for Justin Upton, who continued to struggle with his timing. Upton struck out six times during the series while only getting one hit. He did walk four times though, which is encouraging.
- Yasiel Puig certainly made sure that Braves fans won't forget the first series he played against them. He tallied eight hits, including a monstrous grand slam in game one of the series and also homered again in the second game. Puig also showed off his arm by gunning down Andrelton Simmons at third base in game three of the series.
- Dan Uggla made some headway in terms of righting the ship by connecting for three home runs in the series, including two in the series finale.
- Kris Medlen was the key component in winning the third game of the series. He connected on his first home run of the season, which gives Atlanta three different pitchers that have hit home runs this season. Medlen also fired off 6.2 innings of shutout ball while striking out six and walking just one batter.
- It's time for the Braves to either start using Alex Wood more in higher leverage situations or consider sending him back down. With the quality of stuff he's shown, the mop-up spots he's been put in seem to be a waste of his talent.
- Atlanta now heads to San Diego for a three-game set against the 29-34 Padres.
