Yarbrough (0-1) was charged with the loss against the Braves on Thursday, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks while striking out six across 6.1 innings.
Despite the loss, it was another solid outing for the 28-year-old. Yarbrough worked his way into a second-inning jam after giving up a single to Marcell Ozuna, hitting Adam Duvall with a pitch, then allowing Dansby Swanson to score Ozuna on an RBI single. He soon surrendered Atlanta's final run of the night on a sacrifice fly to Austin Riley. It was an otherwise effective performance as the southpaw threw 56 of 87 pitches for strikes. Unfortunately, his teammates failed to provide enough run support to get him the win. The biggest surprise for Yarbrough was the three free passes he issued, which were his most walks given up since an Aug. 5, 2018 contest against the White Sox. He'll look to get back in the win column Wednesday against the Red Sox.
