The Atlanta Braves started the road trip out West on a high note and defeated the San Francisco Giants 5-1. Spencer Strider got the start and was lights out through seven frames. He allowed one run on three hits and fanned nine. He became the first pitcher this season to reach 15 wins.

“If Snit could put him back out there tomorrow then we can try to make something happen,” red-hot Michael Harris II said of Strider. “It’s fun to play behind him. He throws a lot of strikes and gets a lot of outs, so the game moves fast. Coincidentally, I tend to have good games when he starts.”
Harris also had a night to remember, going 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI.
Harris and the Braves have an opportunity for a series win tomorrow afternoon at 4:05 ET with Max Fried on the bump.
