Even after taking the first two games of their series with the Dodgers, the Atlanta Braves will have to keep fighting to have any hope of staying in the race.

On Thursday night, the Atlanta Braves walked into Dodger Stadium and ended the Dodgers’ 11-game winning streak by taking game one, 6-3. On Friday, the Atlanta offense broke out for a 12-3 victory. But is the end of the line approaching for this young Braves team?

You could argue that Thursday night’s pitching matchup was in favor of Atlanta, but what about Friday, Saturday and Sunday? Friday night, the Braves sent out Jaime Garcia for what could possibly have been his last start for Atlanta against NL All-Star Alex Wood. Before the outing, Wood had amassed an 11-0 record with a 1...

Paul Millsap posted a heartfelt farewell to Atlanta and the Hawks organization.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Paul Millsap is set to join the Denver Nuggets after blossoming into an All-Star player during his four-year stint with the Atlanta Hawks, which followed seven solid seasons as a member of the Utah Jazz.

On his way out of Atlanta, the 32-year-old forward, who signed a 3-year, $90 million deal with the Nuggets, took to Instagram to post a farewell to the city and issue a heartfelt note of gratitude to Hawks fans for their support.

“Tried to find the words to better help explain how much the fans and the city of Atlanta has meant to me but words can not explain it,” Millsap writes. “From an average Joe to a 4 time All [Star]. Atlanta I could not have done it without you...

OAKLAND, Calif. — After a rough start to his season, Atlanta Braves rookie shortstop Dansby Swanson got hot in June, and he didn’t cool off when the calendar flipped on Saturday.

Swanson hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the seventh inning and another one in the ninth inning, leading the Braves to a 4-3 victory against the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum.

“Just a learning curve and trying to get where I need to be personally, mentally,” said Swanson, who was drafted No. 1 overall by Arizona in 2015. “Just trying to become the best version of myself every day. Taking the positives and moving forward with those and taking the negatives and learning from them again. Ups and downs...

ATLANTA (AP) — Brandon Phillips gave Atlanta the lead with a two-run homer in the third to continue his productive homestand, R.A. Dickey threw seven strong innings and the surging Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 on Saturday.

Phillips has homered in three straight games after delivering game-winning hits in back-to-back games against Miami on June 17-18, early in the 10-game homestand. The Braves have won four straight and nine of 12.

Dickey (6-5) allowed one run in seven innings to improve to 5-1 at SunTrust Park. He has won three straight home starts.

The NL Central-leading Brewers began the day 1 1/2 games ahead of the Cubs.

Bryce Cotton will return to the Hawks for a second stint.

Coming to the NBA in 2014 out of Providence, point guard Bryce Cotton spent two seasons with three different NBA teams before spending the 2016-2017 season overseas in Australia. In between those stints, Cotton was an Atlanta Hawk. Just not in the conventional way.

Cotton was invited to the Atlanta Hawks Summer League roster in 2016 in the team’s attempt to add point guard depth. He averaged 12.8 points in the 2016 Summer League and it seemed like the Hawks may have been interested in giving him a roster spot. Cotton instead decided to play overseas.

Former NBA player Bryce Cotton (who spent last season in Australia) will play Summer League with the Atlanta Hawks, according to sources.

Following the worst beginning to any season in Bartolo Colon’s storied career, the Atlanta Braves were forced to reconsider their rotation late Monday night. Manager Brian Snitker was noncommittal on the 44-year-old right-hander making his next start after an 11-4 bashing from the Philadelphia Phillies, and with Tuesday afternoon’s transaction Colon’s future in Atlanta is unknown.

Colon was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain that, according to Snitker, he’s been dealing with for an extended period of time. (Set aside the fact that Colon has repeatedly stated that he’s healthy throughout the campaign, including Monday night.)

His absence opens the door on Saturday for a number of potential options for the team’s doubleheader, including familiar faces Mat...

The Atlanta Braves tweeted today that the team’s bullpen hasn’t allowed a hit for 54 consecutive batters, setting an Atlanta franchise record. The streak has spanned four full games, in which the Braves have gone 3-1.

The last hit allowed by a Braves reliever came when Josh Collmenter surrendered a single to Toronto’s Chris Coghlan to lead off the seventh inning in a 9-0 Blue Jays win.

Since then, seven different pitchers have combined for 16.1 innings of hitless and scoreless baseball to help Atlanta win a series against the National League East-leading Nationals and start a series against Pittsburgh with a victory.

Edward Tororis Carter sold seven firearms to an undercover federal agent, the Department of Justice said.

A 30-year-old Atlanta man has been sentenced to two years and nine months in federal prison for unlawfully possessing a sawed-off shotgun.

Edward Tororis Carter sold seven firearms to an undercover federal agent, a Department of Justice news release said Wednesday.

Carter, who pleaded guilty, was convicted on the charges in December.

Agents bought the guns from Carter during a federal investigation of a convicted felon in 2014, according to the agency. The sawed-off shotgun was 25 inches long with a barrel length of 12 inches.

During the sale, Carter said the shotgun was “ready to go,” the news release said.

His sentence is to be followed by three years of supervised release.
