Johan Camargo scored 2 runs and drove in 2 others, and Nick Markakis and Tyler Flowers hit (quadruple checks notes) triples; Tyler’s giving the Braves some Luke Leeway with his 2nd RBI of the game in the top of the 8th, after Nick’s diving catch with 2 outs and the bases loaded in the 7th preserved a 4 – 3 lead. Charlie Culberson added 3 hits in place of Freddie Freeman, who got the day off to finish battling a cold. 2nd Lt. Dans now has his batting average up to .429.
The bullpen was asked to cover 4 innings, and they managed to hold Arizona scoreless despite allowing 5 hits, helped by issuing (quadruple checks notes) 0 walks, as well as the aforementioned timely defense from Markakis. Luke Jackson went the final 2 innings for his 4th save, working out of a 2 out, 2nd and 3rd jam in the 8th.
