Nola (7-6) allowed one run on four hits and no walks while striking out nine in 8.2 innings to earn the win over Atlanta on Sunday.
Nola came within one strike of tossing a complete game Sunday, but he gave up a solo homer to Austin Riley in the top of the ninth and was removed from the contest afterward. However, the right-hander still returned to the win column after Ranger Suarez recorded a strikeout to end the game. Nola has alternated wins and losses in his last four starts, and he's recorded a 5.84 ERA and 33:2 K:BB in 24.2 innings during that time. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Pittsburgh on Friday.
