Worth noting

• Gonzalez opted to use Eric Hinske as his starting left fielder and Martin Prado as his starting shortstop Friday night. It marked the first time Hinske was in the starting lineup since July 14. That was also the only other date in which Prado had started at the shortstop position this year.

• Entering Friday, Jason Heyward needed two more stolen bases to become the first Braves player since Andruw Jones in 2000 to record 20 homers and 20 stolen bases in the same season. Heyward also has a chance to become Atlanta's first 25/25 player since Jones earned that honor in 1998.
