Atlanta Braves news and notes from Tuesday

The Atlanta Braves reached a home run milestone during Tuesday’s 7-6 comeback win over the Chicago Cubs. The Braves overcame a six-run deficit and hit their 300th home run in the process. The Braves’ 300th home run of the 2023 campaign came off the bat of Kevin Pillar in the sixth inning.

The 2023 Braves mark the third club in major league history to reach 300 home runs. The 2019 Minnesota Twins hit 307, and the 2019 New York Yankees hit 306. With still five regular season games remaining, the Braves are certainly capable of holding the home run record.
