Braves find power stroke, go for sweep of Rays

June 16 - The Atlanta Braves, who suddenly have rediscovered their home run stroke, will go for a three-game sweep of the visiting Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.

The Braves hit two homers on Friday in a 7-3 win and added four long balls on Saturday in a 9-2 victory. Marcell Ozuna homered in both games and leads the National League with 20 homers and 62 RBIs. Austin Riley also homered in both games after ending a career-long stretch of 90 homerless at-bats.

Tampa Bay pitchers continue to have trouble keeping the ball in the park. The Rays have allowed 97 homers, the most in the majors.
