Sanchez (3-0) allowed four hits and no walks while striking out six across seven scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Padres.

Sanchez was in complete control, as he allowed only two runners to reach scoring position. He worked very efficiently, needing only 85 pitches to complete his seven innings of work and beginning 21 of the 25 batters he faced with a strike as he matched his longest outing of the season. Despite the strong performance, Sanchez may find himself out of the Braves' rotation shortly with Julio Teheran (thumb) expected to return from the disabled list Sunday and Mike Foltynewicz's triceps injury looking relatively minor.
