Braves Diary (17/162 and 18/162)

It was a split in the Bronx.

Both games still featured some mostly disappointing offense with Acuña out to rest his abdominal muscles. But! There was definitely more to like on today’s game. Ian Anderson pitched into the 7th (a first for any Braves starter this season), and the bullpen didn’t leak too badly. Austin Riley had a good game, walking twice, and adding a base hit and a homer, taking advantage of the short porch in right at Yankee Stadium.

Thursday’s another much needed off-day for this beat up team, where they’ll attempt to keep it rolling against the Diamondbacks over the weekend.
