9/28/2016 | Foltynewicz ends his season on a strong note

A little over two weeks ago, when a line drive from Marcell Ozuna struck Mike Foltynewicz's left calf and knocked him out of the game, it was unclear if he would pitch for the Braves again in 2016. But in Wednesday's 12-2 win over the Phillies at Turner Field, the right-hander returned from his left calf contusion and made his final start of the season under his own terms, allowing one run on two hits across five innings.

9/25/2016 | Braves, Phils square off to determine season series

9/24/2016 | Teheran-Conley matchup concludes series

9/23/2016 | Before Inciarte's catch, there was Nixon's

The Catch happened during July 1992, when Otis Nixon climbed the outfield wall at Atlanta-Fulton County Coliseum for the Braves to do more than just snatch away a home run from the Pirates' Andy Van Slyke to keep a long winning streak alive.

Which brings us to the unfathomable thing that Ender Inciarte did Wednesday night at Citi Field in New York against the Mets.

Freddie Freeman now has the distinction of doing something his good friend Chipper Jones never did during his legendary career.

9/22/2016 | Snitker: Grab may make Inciarte Gold Glove favorite
