After suffering a 7-3 loss in a bullpen game Saturday, the Atlanta Braves will be looking to secure a series win Sunday when they wrap up a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners. Jared Shuster will get the start for Atlanta while the Mariners will go with right-hander George Kirby.
The Braves will need some innings from Shuster after using five relievers Saturday night. He rejoined the rotation on the last road trip and turned in a good outing allowing three hits and three runs in five innings against the Rangers while throwing 66 pitches.
Kirby will be making his ninth start of the season and has a 2.45 ERA and a 2.56 FIP in 51 innings this season. He allowed eight hits and one run over 6 2/3 innings in his last start against the Red Sox. Kirby has allowed a total of four runs in 20 2/3 innings in May.
Matt Olson had two hits and homered for the second straight game Saturday. Ronald Acuña Jr. also had two hits, extending his hitting streak to 10-straight games. Marcell Ozuna also added two more hits and extended his hitting streak to seven-straight.
First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. ET and can be seen on MLB Network and Bally Sports South.
