The Atlanta Braves started the road trip on a high note with a 6-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Here are the highlights:

  • Michael Soroka is still good at throwing baseballs. He settled in after a shaky first inning and allowed four runs in six innings. He fanned four and gave up two walks.
  • Orlando Arcia homered early
  • Austin Riley hit his 21st home run of the season
  • Kirby Yates made things a bit dramatic in the ninth
  • Ronald Acuña Jr. had an unusual 0-for-5 game

The Braves are back in action against the Brew Crew this evening at 6:15 as Allan Winans makes his major league debut.
