Three Takeaways as Atlanta Braves sweep the San Diego Padres

For the first time since 2006, the Atlanta Braves swept the Padres at PetCo Park. Prior to this series, the Braves had lost 15 of their last 17 games in San Diego, which is crazy to think about.

The offense showed up when it often does — in the late innings. And Mike Soroka was tremendous allowing no runs and striking out a career-high nine batters.

With their win, the Atlanta Braves moved to 29-18 on the road, which is best in the National League.

But more importantly, the Nationals lost, so the lead in the division is now up to seven games.
