Atlanta Braves Record-Setting Offense
The Atlanta Braves lead the league in runs per game and are on their way to setting the single-season team home run record. Ronald Acuna Jr. is having one of the greatest offensive seasons ever and yet, Matt Olson is making a case for MVP!
The Braves have come together to put career-best seasons up. Take a look at these OPS numbers up and down the lineup.

As the Yankees broadcast team was discussing yesterday, there is simply nowhere to catch a break with this incredible Braves' lineup. Suzyn Waldman pointed possibly to Nicky Lopez but then again, since he put on the Braves uniform, Lopez has a 1.286 OPS.
Players that had a lot of uncertainty surrounding them prior to the season have stepped up and been real contributors. Marcell Ozuna looked like he was done after the first month. Since then the Big Bear has awakened from his hibernation and he is hungry. Ozuna is currently riding a 13-game hit streak for the Braves.
The offense is clicking on all cylinders and has carried this team to the best record in all of baseball. They don't appear to be slowing down any time soon.
