Braves' Austin Riley: Blasts 30th long ball
Riley went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a strikeout in Atlanta's 6-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
Riley opened the game's scoring with a 424-foot drive to left in the top of the first to achieve the first 30-home-run campaign of his young career. The solid game continues a torrid stretch that's seen the 24-year-old go 10-for-27 with four doubles and a home run over his last six games.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ozzie Albies: Connects on homer No. 29
Albies went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 6-1 win against Arizona.
Albies launched a solo shot off Arizona starter Luke Weaver to give Atlanta an early four-run lead it wouldn't relinquish. The long ball is the 24-year-old's sixth of September as more than one third of his 16 hits this month have left the yard, though Albies is batting a mediocre .225 across 70 September at-bats....

Braves' Jorge Soler: Crushes 24th homer
Soler went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout in a 6-1 triumph over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
Batting first, Soler took Arizona starter Luke Weaver deep to right in the fifth inning for his 24th home run of the season. The mid-season acquisition has now hit safely in all but two games in September, slashing .274/.312/.493 across 18 contests this month.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Drew Smyly: Picks up 10th win
Smyly (10-4) got the win in Tuesday's 6-1 victory over Arizona, allowing one run on four hits with four strikeouts in 3.1 innings.
Smyly followed opener Jesse Chavez, who pitched 1.1 innings, and entered with a 1-0 lead that eventually grew to 4-0 in the third inning. The 32-year-old delivered a quality outing in his first multi-inning performance since being dropped from the rotation at the beginning of September and Smyly could follow Chavez again Sunday against San Diego....

Braves' Adam Duvall: Homers in second straight
Duvall went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Monday in Atlanta's 11-4 win over Arizona.
Duvall's second home run in as many days was perhaps his most majestic blast of the season -- it traveled an estimated 483 feet. The long ball was Duvall's 37th of the campaign and the 150th of his career. With Duvall having also tacked on 107 RBI and 65 runs to complement his home run total, he's been a major source of profit for fantasy managers who snagged him in the later rounds of drafts....

Braves' Chadwick Tromp: Claimed by Atlanta
Tromp was claimed off waivers by Atlanta on Tuesday and optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Tromp has gotten into nine games this season as an organizational depth option behind the plate in San Francisco. He'll fill that same role with his new organization.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Eddie Rosario: Solid follow-up to Sunday's cycle
Rosario went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk Monday in Atlanta's 11-4 win over Arizona.
After facing only five pitches en route to hitting for the cycle in Sunday's win over the Giants, Rosario was able to stay hot Monday with a pair of hits, including his 13th home run of the season in the ninth inning. Rosario has submitted a 1.171 OPS in 20 games since returning from the injured list in late August, with his stellar start to his tenure with Atlanta allowing him to unseat Joc Pederson for an everyday role in the outfield....

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Working out of bullpen
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Toussaint will be available out of the bullpen behind opening pitcher Jesse Chavez in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Snitker didn't explicitly say that Toussaint lost his rotation spot, but that appears to be the implication, given that he hasn't pitched since being tagged for four runs on five hits and three walks in four innings in his last start Sept. 14 versus the Rockies. Toussaint won't necessarily work as a primary pitcher behind Chavez either, as Snitker termed Tuesday's contest as a bullpen day since Atlanta will have its full complement of relievers available. Atlanta will have a need for a fifth starter again Sunday in San Diego, but the early expectation is that the team will get by with another bullpen game rather than reinserting Toussaint into the rotation....

Braves' Jesse Chavez: To serve as opener
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker announced that Chavez will serve as the team's opening pitcher in a bullpen game Tuesday in Arizona, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Chavez will be filling the rotation spot that previously belonged to Touki Toussaint, who will be available out of the bullpen Tuesday along with all of Atlanta's other relievers, according to Snitker. In his lone other outing as an opener this season back on June 24 against the Reds, Chavez covered 2.1 innings and gave up two runs while striking out three. He's made only two one-inning appearances over the past week, so Chavez should be able to cover 2-to-3 frames Tuesday before giving way to the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Huascar Ynoa: No-decision Monday
Ynoa didn't factor into the decision Monday against Arizona after allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across four innings.
Ynoa was far from being at his best Monday and was removed before the beginning of the fifth after a 75-pitch outing. The 23-year-old right-hander remains winless since he returned from the injured list Aug. 17, going 0-3 but with a 3.93 ERA across 36.2 innings in that span.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Austin Riley: Plates three runs Monday
Riley went 3-for-5 with three doubles, three RBI and a run scored in Monday's win over Arizona.
Riley has hit safely in each of Atlanta's last six games and in nine of his last 10 contests, so there's no question he's been seeing the ball well of late. Despite his strong recent numbers, the talented third baseman is going through a power drought since he hasn't gone yard since Sep. 5, a span of 12 games.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Freddie Freeman: Keeps impressive stretch alive
Freeman went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's win over Arizona.
The star first baseman has been mashing of late and extended his hitting streak to 10 games with another multi-hit performance -- his sixth during that stretch. Freeman is hitting .395 with a 1.073 OPS, two homers, seven RBI, three doubles, a triple and eight runs scored during his ongoing streak.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jacob Webb: Earns win in relief
Webb (5-3) earned the win in relief Monday against the Diamondbacks after tossing a scoreless inning, striking out two.
Webb pitched the fifth inning and was extremely effective, needing just 13 pitches (eight strikes) to get the job done. He extended his streak of appearances without allowing an earned run to 14 (15 innings) and continues to be a reliable arm out of the bullpen for Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Not starting Monday
D'Arnaud isn't starting Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.
D'Arnaud will get a breather after he went 1-for-16 with a three-run homer and six strikeouts across the last four games. William Contreras will start behind the dish and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Austin Riley: Doubles, scores in win
Riley went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Giants.
Riley doubled off Anthony DeSclafani in the seventh inning and scored on Adam Duvall's home run. He has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games. The 24-year-old is slashing .298/.367/.515 with 29 long balls, 89 RBI and 80 runs scored in 605 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
