Travis Shaw's career-long 465-foot blast Thursday ties Kris Bryant for the farthest homer hit this season. Wil Myers' 439-foot shot was his second-longest at Petco, while Ryan Zimmerman's 431-footer was his longest since August 2015. Matt Carpenter and Neil Walker round out the list.

On huge night for the Braves' best veteran hitter, it was a newbie who got the game winner. And it was much needed. Dansby Swanson's walk off single gave the Atlanta Braves a 5-4 win over the San Diego Padres Monday. It was a much-needed boost for the struggling rookie as the Braves improved to 4-0 at SunTrust Park. But it was Freddie Freeman who kept Atlanta in striking distance. Freeman went 4 for 4 with two doubles and two homers.

The Braves' Freddie Freeman went deep last inning for his first homer at SunTrust Park and fourth of the season -- in 12 games. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Freeman didn't hit his fourth homer last season until his 28th game, on May 7. He went on to hit a career-high 34 homers. With that short porch in right at STP, Freeman could definitely challenge that mark this time around.

The amazing Bartolo Colon just keeps rolling. Just five weeks shy of his 44th birthday, Colon baffled the Padres for seven innings in a 9-2 Braves victory. In his Braves home debut, Colon allowed a second-inning homer to Ryan Schimpf, but faced the minimum in his other six frames, exiting after 85 pitches having allowed one hit and one walk. He struck out six. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Sunday's win marked the third time during his epochal career that Colon has held an opponent to one hit or fewer over seven or more innings. The last time he did it was against Texas on July 27, 2004.

An unlikely power surge continues for Atlanta's Ender Inciarte, as he goes deep to right for his second homer in three games at STP. Inciarte has now homered four times in his last four games after hitting three homers in 131 games last season.

More emotions are OK with some

Players' demonstrativeness during the World Baseball Classic has had some carry-over for players like Wil Myers. One MLB executive thinks it's "good for the game."

Bartolo Colon is rolling through his first home start for the Braves. He allowed a homer to San Diego's Ryan Schimpf in the second but has faced the minimum in every other inning. Through six frames, he's thrown just 74 pitches.

The Padres' Trevor Cahill, fresh off the DL as of this morning, was cruising so effortlessly through four hitless innings that I actually pulled up a no-hitters list in case I had to shift into that mode. After striking out Nick Markakis to start the fifth, Cahill's control went missing. Atlanta gets a two-run single from Tyler Flowers as Cahill walked a hitter and threw three wild pitches in the fifth. Braves lead 2-1 at they try to go 3-0 at STP (my new shorthand for SunTrust Park).

San Diego's Ryan Schimpf opens the scoring today in Atlanta with a shot to center off Bartolo Colon, an instant fan favorite here who is making his home debut with the Braves. Was looking at some Statcast data yesterday and noticed how badly Schimpf was struggling, ranking near the bottom in putting pitches into play (partly because he walks so much) and average exit velocity. He also leads the majors in average launch angle, which certainly aided that blast.
