Brach fired a scoreless ninth inning Thursday, allowing a hit while striking out two to secure the save over Atlanta.

Brach's only blemish was a single by Freddie Freeman. He doesn't normally pitch in save situations, but closer Lucas Sims (elbow) just hit the injured list. It's still notable that Brach received the ninth inning over Tejay Antone and Amir Garrett, who've combined for seven saves this season. However, Brach has been stellar and hasn't allowed a run since June 6. The 35-year-old has a 2.51 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 18 strikeouts in 14.1 innings.
