The Atlanta Braves wrapped up a red-hot June with a 21-4 record after defeating the Miami Marlins 16-4. It was a huge night for the Braves, offensively and on the mound. Here are the highlights:

  • Michael Soroka made (and won!) his first home start since 2020. He tossed six frames and allowed just three runs on five hits.
  • Austin Riley and Matt Olson were each one hit shy of the cycle.
  • The Braves essentially played a game of home run derby. Eddie Rosario, Matt Olson, Sean Murphy, Austin Riley, and Ronald Acuña Jr. each went yard. The Braves ended the month of June with 61 homers, setting a franchise record for home runs in a month.
  • The bullpen arms limited the Fish to just two hits.
  • Just two Braves were left on base.

The Braves aim to take their hot streak into the month of July, kicking it off with game two against the Marlins beginning this afternoon at 4:10 ET.
