    Braves' Robbie Erlin: Another short outing

    Robbie Erlin didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Phillies, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out three.Bryce Harper took him deep in the first inning for a two-run shot, but Erlin was able to settle down after that, throwing 67 pitches (39 strikes) before leaving the mound.

If he gets another turn, Erlin's next start will come Friday in a road rematch with the Phillies.
