Mike Foltynewicz Wins MLB Debut as Braves Beat the Reds

ATLANTA (AP) – Mike Foltynewicz won his first career start and drove in two runs with his first career hit to help the Atlanta Braves beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 on Friday night.
Kelly Johnson hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning for a 4-3 lead, Atlanta’s first of the game, and the Braves snapped a three-game losing streak. Atlanta also won for the third time in 11 games.
Foltynewicz (1-0), recalled earlier in the day from Triple-A Gwinnett, settled down after a rough, 28-pitch first inning. The right-hander allowed six hits, three walks and three runs – two earned – with two strikeouts in five innings.
Anthony DeSclafani (2-2) had his worst outing in five starts for the Reds, allowing four hits, four runs and five walks with five strikeouts in five innings.
