Dan Uggla got the attention for his 33-game hitting streak, but that might not even be the most impressive run on his own team. Through Sunday, Braves closer Craig Kimbrel hadn't allowed a run in more than two months, covering 26 2/3 innings over 27 appearances. The hard-throwing 23-year-old rookie has struck out 46% of the batters he's faced during the streak, while allowing just eight hits (.093 batting average against) and eight walks (.179 OBP). With 36 saves, Kimbrel is a lock to break the record for saves by a rookie (40, set last season by the Rangers' Neftali Feliz) and he has a chance to become the youngest pitcher to save 50 in a season. Credit dramatically improved control—Kimbrel has cut his walk rate in half compared to his late-season cup of coffee in 2010—for creating one of the best closers in baseball and the favorite for the NL Rookie of the Year award.
