The Atlanta Braves won their fourth consecutive game on Friday evening after defeating the Colorado Rockies 8-1. The Braves jumped in front in the first inning, courtesy of a wild pitch which was followed by Travis d’Arnaud’s first home run of the night. (Yes, first.) d’Arnaud cranked another two-run bomb in the third inning to extend the Braves’ lead.

His first home run traveled 474 feet and marked the 100th of his career.

“It felt really good,” d’Arnaud said of his Friday night success. “I had some fun with the guys. Me, Kevin Pillar, Austin Riley and Ozzie Albies all had 97 to start the year. I was the last one to get to 100, so they were all making fun of me a little bit. It was a good time.”

The Braves improve to 11-3 in the month of June and look to extend their win streak this afternoon at 4:10 ET.
