With a doubt, surprise sources of pitching success have been a big part of the Braves excellent start to the season.

From Bryce Elder to Nick Anderson to Michael Tonkin, the Braves have had several arms step up to find success.

On Sunday, the latest Brave to step up and stand out was Jared Shuster. Earning his first career victory on Sunday, Shuster completed six innings while allowing only one earned one.
