The Braves are very adept at winning in bunches, but what is the longest winning streak in franchise history?

Fans of the Atlanta Braves have become accustomed to the team winning a lot. In 2023 alone, the Braves had a winning record in every month of the season and in two months (June and August), they had 21 win months which is pretty silly when you think about it. This is a team that knows how to get wins in bunches.

However, to find the longest winning streak in Braves franchise history in the modern era, we have to go further back. In terms of all-time, technically the longest winning streak in franchise history was from the 1891 Boston Beaneaters, but the focus here is going to be on the longest modern era winning streak we have seen from a Braves team.

Longest Braves winning streak: 15 games, April 16-May 2, 2000

This was right in the middle of the Braves' historic run of division titles with Bobby Cox at the helm. Future Hall of Famers Chipper Jones, Greg Maddux, and Tom Glavine were on the roster and the team would go on to finish 95-67 before getting unceremonious swept in the NLDS by the Cardinals. Yes, the Cardinals' devil magic goes back even that far.

Notably, the Braves pitching was a big reason for this 15 game win streak despite the fact that John Smoltz missed the entire 2000 season due to injury. Braves pitchers still managed to not give up more than four runs during the entire streak (and that only happened three times) before the streak finally came to an end against the Dodgers. Funnily enough, the Braves would go on to lose six of their next eight games before getting back on track again.

The 2022 Braves came close to the record as did the 2013 Braves as both teams posted 14 game win streaks. In both cases, the Braves' seasons came to similar ends to the 2000 team as they both lost early in the playoffs as well, so it may be better if the Braves save some of these win streaks for the postseason.
