Kyle Korver went out w/ a broken leg in G2 of the ECF last year. This year he's coming off a strong 1st Rd (12.2p on 45 pct from 3). Ty Lue has noticed: "We know he's dangerous ... In the last series, his plus/minus when he's on the floor was +78. When he was off the floor, they were -24, so we know how important he is"

The Braves weren't able to extend their streak of games with a home run to two, but they did snap an eight-game losing skid. Freddie Freeman may be breaking out of his struggles, adding three hits after homering on Wednesday, and Nick Markakis (four hits) could be potential trade bait if he keeps producing from the leadoff spot.

‘Not fun right now’ for struggling Braves

Despite Freddie Freeman ending a franchise-record stretch of 15 games without a homer for the Braves on Wednesday, things are far from peachy in Atlanta. The Braves have set a franchise record for losses in April, and rank near the bottom in many of the league's key statistical categories -- most notably, the team has just four home runs on the season. “It’s really hard to put into words,” Freeman said to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Michael Cunningham.

Our long national nightmare is over. The Atlanta Braves finally hit a home run, their first in 15 games and 563 at-bats, and fourth on the season. Freddie Freeman, who has admitted to being unable to catch up to fastballs, hit a fastball -- although one clocked at 89 mph. So they passed the 1975 Angels, who hit three homers that April in 20 games and would end up with just 55 on the season.

So Andrew McCutchen has hit as many HRs tonight (3) as the Braves have hit all season. Hard to believe I just typed that.

Atlanta's power outage (0:26)

Brave-ing the cellar of MLB power ranks

Atlanta needs to find more firepower in their lineup -- and fast. Just 4-14, the team is off to a rough start, hitting only one home run since the first game of the season. Week 3 Power Rankings
