Around the league ...

The Braves broke the hangover streak by winning on Saturday and their star centerfielder accomplished something that had not been done in a long time.

This is not a streak you need if you are chasing a playoff spot.

If you didn’t hear, the Padres made Andy Green the first manager to be relieved of his job in 2019. Bruce Bochy is retiring next week but he is still on the job so he doesn’t count. Green’s contract was through 2021.
