The Braves' bats have come alive the past two days, scoring 16 runs in two wins over the Marlins and Nationals. A day after Jason Heyward and Justin Upton clubbed back-to-back homers, the Bravos cranked out 15 hits on Tuesday afternoon in a winning 9-5 effort over Washington.
In that win over the Nats, Evan Gattis continued to rake. He went 2-for-3 with a double and strikeout, raising his average to .556 through nine at-bats this spring.
It's pretty clear at this point that Gattis can hit Major League pitching. After tearing his way through the Minor Leagues, he hasn't missed a beat the first week of exhibition action.
