1st – (ATL) Michael Bourn scored on wild pitch for 1-0 Braves lead, .092
1st – (ATL) Error scored run for 2-0 Braves lead, .109
Kris Medlen makes this pitching thing look easy. Medlen pitched his second complete game by allowing one unearned run on five hits with no walks and a career-high 12 strikeouts. His 87 game score is also a career high, and his past four starts have been game scores of 83, 69, 81, 87. That’s pretty difficult to do.
Medlen induced 10 ground balls, six fly balls and three line drives, recording a .263 BABIP. He threw 26 balls and 85 strikes over 111 pitches.
The Braves announced after the game that Julio Teheran and Cory Gearrin will get called up Tuesday. Randall Delgado was also called up today as bullpen insurance. Medlen didn’t need it.
