Braves in August

on .

The Braves were 20-8 in August, their second-best monthly record of the year behind July's 20-6, boosting their record to 77-54. Jaret Wright and Mike Hampton were each 4-1 for the month, Paul Byrd was 3-1, John Thomson was 2-1, and Russ Ortiz was 1-1. The pitching staff gave up quite a few more runs this month than last, but was still able to win 20 games due to an offensive charge rivaling last year's offense. As a team, the Braves batted .311 with a .378 on-base percentage and .475 slugging percentage. Rafael Furcal (.341, 12 SB) and Chipper Jones (.337, 11 HR, 29 RBI) led the charge, but Mark Derosa, Julio Franco, and Eli Marrero each hit over .350 in less playing time (58-for-158 or .367 overall). Johnny Estrada, JD Drew, and Eddie Perez also posted batting averages above .300 for the month, and Adam LaRoche and Nick Green missed it by one hit each. If the Braves continue to win at the pace they have since the end of June, they should be closing in on 100 wins by October 3. Given their 81-55 record at the time of this writing, that would require them to go 19-7 for the remainder of the season.
