Braves' Mike Soroka: Shuts down Cards for fourth win
Soroka (4-1) picked up the win in Wednesday's 4-0 victory over the Cardinals, giving up three hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out three.
The right-hander ran into serious trouble in the third inning, loading the bases on two walks and a HBP with one out, but Soroka coaxed a double-play grounder out of Paul Goldschmidt to escape the jam. The 21-year-old has yet to give up more than a single run in any of his six starts since his promotion, and Soroka will take a dazzling 0.98 ERA and 34:14 K:BB through 36.2 innings into his next outing Monday in San Francisco.
