It was a successful Tuesday night at Truist Park as the Atlanta Braves took down the Philadelphia Phillies 13-1. Spencer Strider made another incredible start, striking out 13 over 6.2 frames. He surrendered one run.

The Braves offense racked up 14 hits and could not be stopped. Eddie Rosario had a huge night at this dish, collecting five RBI. Over the last six games, Rosario has safely reached base 11 times.

“I’ve been progressing a little bit at a time, but definitely getting better each time,” Rosario said following his 3-for-5 night. “I feel like I’m taking better pitches and putting better swings on balls,” he added. “Progress is happening continuously.”

The two-game set ends today as Charlie Morton is on the bump, seeking his sixth win. First pitch is set for 12:20 ET.
