NEW YORK — Having already made a strong case for consideration as staff ace, Braves pitcher Mike Minor branched out to impactful hitting Saturday night against the Mets.
His two hits included a two-run homer to start a five-run outburst in the fifth inning, propelling the Braves to a 6-0 shutout against the Mets and extending their winning streak to eight games. It was Minor’s first homer since his senior year in high school in 2006.

The Atlanta Braves took out division rival New York Mets on Saturday night by a final score of 6-0 with starting pitcher Mike Minor dominating the game.
But instead of a “here is what, when and how it happened” piece, this is a journey through the nightcap through the humorous eyes of Twitter.
However, these tweets are not from beat writers, analysts or anyone with a blue “verified” check mark; they come from parodies. Parody accounts mock both players and coaches, and they bring a unique kind of entertainment to fans throughout the game.
Now, with the help of some fake Braves on Twitter, enjoy a chronological recap of Atlanta’s shutout victory over the Mets.

They say too much talent is never a bad thing, but one member of the Atlanta Braves’ rotation may not feel that way after Brandon Beachy returns from offseason Tommy John surgery to force someone to the bullpen.
Beachy has already begun his minor league rehab assignments, and, if everything remains on course, the Braves’ ace should rejoin the team by mid-June.
“His command was a little spotty, but that was the first time he’s faced outside competition,” Gonzalez said after Beachy tossed 70 pitches in his first rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett. “He was fine. He’s progressing well and we’ll just keep him going.”
