The Braves did it. They have swept the Phillies and are now onto Washington. Unbeleivable 3 days for the Braves, starting 5 games behind and now they are only 2 games out. How? Well the pitching has been great and they are getting timely hitting. Has Martin Prado turned the Braves around with his clutch hitting? I think he has been the biggest offensive reason for the sweep of the Phillies, so what was Bobby Cox waiting for to make him the everyday second baseman. I have been saying for a while now that Prado should be starting. The Braves must keep their foot on the pedal and not take Washington lightly. There is still alot of work ahead for the Braves and a 7 game winning streak or 2 series sweeps in a row would be a great start.
