NUM­BERS GAME 15

Cecil Whig - - INSIDEBASEBALL -

That’s how many games the Braves went with­out a home run, span­ning April 11-27, be­fore Fred­die Free­man led off the eighth in­ning with a shot in a 9–4 loss to Bos­ton. It was the fran­chise’s long­est stretch since 1946, that com­ing two cities ago when the Braves were lo­cated in Bos­ton. It’s the long­est streak in base­ball since St. Louis went with­out a home run for 18 games in 1991.
