“These past two games, my God,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “It could have been real easy to [use the challenging road trip] as an excuse, quite honestly. But these guys fought their asses off for the last 10 days. It’s been rough. But it’s been unbelievable how they keep piecing it all together.”
When Smith struck out Ha-Seong Kim with the bases loaded to end Sunday’s thriller at Petco Park, the Braves concluded a 7-3 road trip with a 2 1/2-game lead in the National League East. Their magic number will be five when they begin a three-game series against the second-place Phillies on Tuesday in Atlanta.
“We’ll see what happens,” Snitker said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do, but you’d rather be in this position than the other. Shoot, it’s kind of fun to wake up, have a cup of coffee, then you can’t eat and all you want to do is go to the ballpark.”

- First win of the season for Atlanta, 17-14: The Falcons and Giants entered Sunday’s game winless, desperate for victory.
That hunger was evident from both sidelines, even though execution wasn’t always so crisp. Such uneven play, which featured a few standout moments, set up a close game down the stretch. Fourth-quarter execution would determine the victor and get a team off the schneid. Ultimately, that earned the Falcons their first win. Younghoe Koo cemented a 17-14 victory with a 40-yard field goal as time expired.
