Mike Foltynewicz went 7 innings, allowing 3 hits and the run, while walking 3, and striking out 7, leading the Braves in salvaging a game from the 3 game set. The Braves are 30 – 21 and regain a 1/2 game lead in the NL East, as the Phillies lost to Toronto.
Ronald Acuna left the game in the 7th after his knee bent into a most unnatural position while coming to a stop after an infield single. Acuna was able to walk off under his own power, and the Braves PR department described his condition as “knee and lower back pain.”
Acuna is undergoing an MRI; let’s see what that department has to say.
The Mets come to town for a Memorial Day day-night double header, and the Braves don’t have a day off until June 7th, so it was great to see Foltynewicz last 7 innings. His ERA drops to 2.55 as well.
