Atlanta Braves news and notes from Friday

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves began the weekend series on a high note and cruised to a 7-0 win over the New York Mets. Here are the highlights:

  • The Braves somehow managed a shutout despite Charlie Morton’s seven walks.
  • Eddie Rosario collected 3 RBI
  • Austin Riley hit home run number 27 on the year
  • Michael Harris II is a ridiculously good outfielder

All in all, the Braves are still lacking in the starting pitching department. The offense will *hopefully* continue to produce until the pitching staff can get out of its slump.

Up next, the Braves play two against the Mets. Game one gets underway this afternoon at 1:10 ET with game two to follow at 7:15 ET.
