Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Throws six strong innings

Foltynewicz didn't factor into the decision against Milwaukee on Sunday, pitching six innings and giving up two runs on three hits while striking out three. He did not walk a batter.

This was easily Foltynewicz's best game of the season, as he had failed to earn a quality start in each of his previous four outings. He made it through six innings on an ultra-efficient 67 pitches and allowed only three baserunners, though two rounded the bases on solo home runs. Foltynewicz again struggled to strike batters out -- he now has only 17 K's in 27.1 innings this year -- but the strong outing is a positive step after a late start to the season due to elbow soreness. He'll face the Cardinals on the road in his next start Friday.
