Braves News: Collin McHugh, another comeback win, more

Atlanta Braves news and notes from Wednesday

Michael Harris was the difference for Atlanta on Wednesday, as he finally reaped some rewards of hitting the ball hard, as he found some launch angle and avoided some gloves in the 7-5 win. Getting Harris up to an average to above average bat for the rest of the season instead of the virtual hole he has been in the lineup would be a major boost. There are many reasons to be optimistic that Harris can do that, even if he can’t quite repeat his somewhat lucky offensive production from last year. As he continues to put his few injuries from earlier in the season behind him, finding his bat again would make this lineup significantly scarier, especially against right handed pitchers, which have given the Braves some trouble this season.
