Braves update

The Braves are enduring their worst season since 1990, with a 33-46 record that has them fourth in the National league East. They lost two of three to the Yankees earlier this week. The formerly pitching-rich Braves ranked ninth in the National league in ERA entering yesterday. Center fielder Andruw Jones leads the Braves with 18 homers and 65 RBIs. Outfielder Jeff Francoeur is showing the same power he did as a rookie with 15 homers and 57 RBIs but is struggling with a .274 on-base percentage. Shortstop Edgar Renteria is having a strong rebound season with a .300 average and .380 on-base percentage. Third baseman Chipper Jones has missed 15 games with a variety of nagging injuries.
