The Atlanta Braves dropped their fourth straight game Friday night with a 5-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. All five of the runs scored by the Brewers came in the third inning against Mike Foltynewciz who was otherwise spotless. Atlanta tried to mount a rally late but came up just short.
Ender Inciarte was 0-for-2 with a pair of walks but did provide this nice defensive play in center to rob Ryan Braun of extra bases.
The game wasn’t without a replay moment. Dansby Swanson singled in the ninth and appeared to steal second but was called out on the play. The Braves challenged but replay upheld the decision. You be the judge.
