MILWAUKEE -- Though they have hardly any hope of a magical run to the postseason, the Atlanta Braves are quietly putting together one of their best stretches of baseball during an otherwise disappointing season.The Braves 2-1 victory Tuesday night at Milwaukee extended their winning streak to four games and with a victory over the Brewers on Wednesday night, Atlanta will have won its third consecutive series.I think you have to just stay the course, Braves manager Brian Snitzer said. When you handle adversity there are good things on the other end of it. But you have to handle it. You take ownership of things and handle it. The way these guys come to the ballpark every day and prepare for todays game is very impressive to me. They are all professional. They do their work, get ready to play and leave it all out there when the game starts.During their recent run of success, few Braves players have been hotter than outfielder Nick Markakis, who tied the game Tuesday with an RBI single, sparking a seventh-inning rally. Hes been on a tear since the All-Star break, batting .353 with six doubles, two home runs and 14 RBI.Winning is always fun for anybody whether you are playing for a playoff spot or you are playing for next year, Markakis said. Whatever it may be, Im excited for the guys. Hopefully we can keep it going.Right-hander Joel De La Cruz will try to do just that for Atlanta, as he looks for his first victory of the season.He allowed only a run on two hits his last time out, but walked five in a loss to the Cardinals.To be honest, I didnt really feel like I pitched my best tonight, De La Cruz said after the outing through a team interpreter. I know Ive got more out there, Ive got more in the tank. I can do a little bit better next time. I feel like it wasnt my best performance and Im looking forward to going out there and getting a better start.Cruz actually began his professional career with the Brewers, who signed him as an amateur free agent in 2006 and appeared in two games for Milwaukees Arizona Rookie League entry that season.Milwaukee, meanwhile, will look to snap a three-game losing streak behind right-hander Chase Anderson, who has started to get back on track after a rocky stretch.Over his last three starts, Anderson is 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA. He took no decision his last time out, holding Arizona to two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five in an 11-inning 3-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.(Yasmany Tomas) got the best of me tonight, Anderson said after the game. But (I) kept the team in the game, and it was a great game until the end. Team fought hard, (catcher Martin Maldonado) did great back there, and it sucks to be on this side because our guys pitched really well.Anderson, acquired over the offseason from Arizona, comes into the contest 6-10 with a 5.01 ERA and five quality starts in 22 outings.Hes faced Atlanta just once in his career, earning a victory after allowing two runs on five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts while with the Diamondbacks last season.
