One game after getting walloped for 14 runs, Braves pitching responded by holding the Orioles to one run Tuesday.
Huascar Ynoa and the Braves’ superb bullpen led them past the Orioles, 5-1, at Camden Yards to even the series. As the Braves begin to get their rotation in order, it was refreshing to see a clean game from one of their non-traditional starters.
Ynoa had his best outing of the season, allowing two hits, striking out five and walking none over four scoreless innings. He threw just 49 pitches (35 for strikes), showing excellent fastball command and a crisp slider.
“He was awesome,” manager Brian Snitker said. “I’m seeing him make a lot of strides here the last couple times. Controlling his delivery better, getting in the strike zone better. That’s a really good slider he has, too. That was really encouraging tonight.”
