Braves-Reds Preview

(AP) -- After going unbeaten over the last month-plus, Ervin Santana is on the verge of matching the longest winning streak of his career.

He would appear to have a good chance to do so against the punchless Cincinnati Reds, who are looking to avoid their longest losing streak in five seasons Saturday night.

Santana is 6-0 with a 2.98 ERA over his last seven starts, a stretch during which he's struck out 45 over 45 1-3 innings. The right-hander won seven consecutive decisions with the Angels in his second season in 2006.
