Atlanta Braves news and notes from Friday

The Atlanta Braves survived Friday night’s back-and-forth affair with the Milwaukee Brewers and came out on top 10-7. Yonny Chirinos made his Braves debut, the offense erased quite a few deficits, and the Braves finally got back in the win column.

Here are the highlights:

  • Chirinos had an underwhelming first outing, lasting just 3.2 innings. He allowed four runs on six hits, striking out three and surrendering one base on balls.
  • Austin Riley is staying hot, hitting his seventh homer in nine games. Even better, Olson added on in the next at-bat to allow the Braves to homer back-to-back.
  • Marcell Ozuna was clutch in the fourth to tie things up.
  • Ben Heller was…..dreadful. Following a walk and a single, he allowed a three run bomb which helped Milwaukee cut the deficit to three. However, the bullpen was able to hang on.

The Braves aim to start a win streak as the series continues tonight at 7:20 ET with Bryce Elder on the bump.
