Cubs host high-scoring Braves in showdown of division leaders

The Atlanta Braves will take their run-scoring machine to Wrigley Field on Monday to open a four-game series against the host Chicago Cubs in a battle of first-place teams in the National League.

The Braves have reached double-digit runs six times in June, including five games in which they scored at least 12 runs. The most recent came Saturday in a 13-9 shootout against the Washington Nationals.

It made the Braves' victory Sunday tame by comparison. In fact, Atlanta needed 10 innings to earn a 4-3 triumph over the Nationals, the Braves' 13th victory over their last 16 games. The Braves have won five consecutive series.
