ATLANTA (AP) – Rookie Spencer Strider missed the sixth inning to score a ten, William Contreras hit the tied host and Atlanta Braves defeated Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 on Sunday to take home three games.
Strider (11-5) didn’t allow a hit until Alec Bohm equalized the score 1-1. Beginning center-back Michael Harris II looked like he could catch the ball while jumping, but it flew just out of reach of his glove and went through the wall. Bohm’s 12th homer traveled 412 feet.
Contreras defeated Connor Brogdon (2-1) and scored from 410 feet in place of the left field and moved up 2-1 in sixth place.
Robbie Grossman, who was driving the first Braves streak with a double in the third, hit his seventh host, giving the Braves a 3-1 lead over Sam Coonrod in seventh. Austin Riley played the points single and Marcell Ozuna added the RBI double in eighth place.
Atlanta improved to 68-28 as of June 1, the best major event during that period. The World Series defender Braves started their first leg behind the New York Mets at the NL East.
Philadelphia kicked off Sunday with San Diego halfway through the game for a second NL wildcard. The Phillies were 59-34 from June 1, a draw for the fourth percent win over the same period, but have lost four consecutive times after winning five in a row.
Strider gave up one run and one stroke with three walks in six rounds in his sixth double-digit crossed-out appearance. The three relievers finished four blows.
Strider defeated Nick Maton to start fifth, making 200 strikes per season and becoming the first 200 debutant Braves in the modern era. Despite not starting his first start until May 30, Strider started the day fourth in NL with 192 strikes in 128 rounds.
He is 4-0 with a score of 1.27 ERA on three career starts and one appearance against Philadelphia. The Phillies came out 0v8 with the runners on the points position after starting the game with the best average for such situations with majors at 0.276.
JT Realmuto eliminated Jesse Chavez in ninth place and moved up to 5-2.
The Braves have won eight home games in a row, beating rivals 39-11 during that period, and have won 11 of the last 14 games against Philadelphia in Atlanta, ahead of Phillies 75:44 in this episode.
The Phillies Bailey Falter starter allowed one run and four hits in 4 2/3 innings.
Phillies: When RHP Zack Wheeler (Tendonitis Forearm) leaves IL for his start on Wednesday, he will count the pitch and will be replaced at the start of the game by RHP Noah Syndergaard. Interim manager Rob Thomson plans to use Syndergaard in the role for two starts behind Wheeler. The Falter will remain in rotation. … 1B Rhys Hoskins (right-hand) returned to the squad after being hit by the pitch on Wednesday. He went 0 on 4.
Braves: 2B Ozzie Albies will wear a cast for three weeks after breaking her right little finger on Friday. He won’t require surgery and he hopes to come back after the season. Albies was placed on a 10-day IL and INF Rylan Bannon was dismissed from Triple-A Gwinnett.
Atlanta 1B Matt Olson dropped 0 to 4 and as of August 28 is down to 0.062 with one Homer and four RBIs. His average has dropped 22 points to 0.234 in the last 18 games.
Kid Nichols crossed 222 in 1890 and Bill Stemmyer turned 239 in 1886 to keep the Braves franchise record in rookie strikes in one season. The last beginner pitcher to hit 200 or more in one season was Yu Darvish in 2012.
IN THE FUTURE
Phillies: After Monday off, Philadelphia will send Kyle Gibson’s RHP to the mound next to RHP Ross Stripling (8-4, 2.94) as the team starts their home streak against Toronto.
