Worth noting

• Martin Prado started at four different positions -- left field, shortstop, third base and second base -- during the four-game series against the Giants.

Prado recorded his 15th stolen base during Saturday's win over the Giants. Michael Bourn and Jason Heyward had previously reached that mark. The last time the Braves had three players with 15 stolen bases was in 2000 (Rafael Furcal, Andruw Jones and Reggie Sanders).

• When the Braves added a run in the top of the ninth inning Saturday, Craig Kimbrel was denied a save opportunity. The All-Star closer entered Sunday having made five appearances since last getting a save opportunity Aug. 3.
