Nitty and Gritty

Braves solidify hold on NL East, winning 9 of 10; take 3 of 4 from Nats in weekend series; Cardinals in Atlanta October 3?

Matt Joyce and Dansby Swanson execute a rare double slide against the Blue Jays on Tuesday—With the bases loaded in the bottom of the 8th in Atlanta, the Braves’ Mike Flowers hit a fly ball to deep Center, chasing Toronto CF Teoscar Hernandez to the wall. When the ball got away, the Braves’ Josh Donaldson ambled in from third, but Matt Joyce, on second, had to see if the ball would be caught before running, while speedster Dansby Swanson took off from first. As the throw came home, both Joyce, with Dansby hot on his heels, slid in to the plate at the same time. With no interference, both were called safe for the final two runs of Atlanta’s 7-2 win.
