Mike Foltynewicz. He tested his legs with an easy jog around the bases.
Yelich and Eric Thames scored on Jesus Aguilar’s towering drive to center Josh Oliver Jersey , capping a five-run third inning and sending the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.
Aguilar’s 20th homer traveled an estimated 433 feet.
”It was a good one,” Aguilar said. ”I was just waiting for one pitch. Thankfully, I got it.”
Tyler Saladino also homered for the Brewers, who have won five straight to extend their NL Central lead to 2 1/2 games over the second-place Cubs.
Rookie Freddy Peralta (4-1) struck out six while pitching six innings of one-run ball. The rookie right-hander has turned into a vital piece of Milwaukee’s rotation.
”Every start you learn something,” he said.
After Peralta departed, Atlanta rallied for three runs in the seventh off Jacob Barnes. But the Braves’ rally faltered when they failed to score with two on and no out after Dan Jennings replaced Barnes, and then left two on with one out in the eighth against Jeremy Jeffress.
”We were a productive out away from tying the game,” Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. ”We didn’t even need a hit.”
Corey Knebel worked around a one-out single in the ninth for his 11th save.
Atlanta has lost a season-high four straight and fell into a virtual tie with Philadelphia atop the NL East, with the Phillies leading by percentage points.
Foltynewicz (6-5) had allowed five runs over his previous nine starts. He allowed that many in the span of six hitters in the third.
Saladino’s two-run shot was his first following a five-week stint on the disabled list due to a sprained left ankle. After Peralta struck out and Thames singled, Yelich was hit by a breaking ball on the inside of his knee.
When Yelich reached first, Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman kissed his own hand and playfully massaged Yelich’s left knee.
Yelich and the Brewers felt better moments later Deandre Baker Jersey , thanks to Aguilar.
”I left that pitch right over the middle,” said Foltynewicz, who struck out seven in six innings. ”His bat path ran right into it.”
Foltynewicz was again felled by one inning. On May 4, he gave up six runs in the second inning against the Giants. In his 93 other innings this season, he has a 1.35 ERA.
Braves: LHP Max Fried was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand. RHP Evan Phillips was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett. … OF Ronald Acuna Jr. left in the seventh with left groin tightness after beating out an infield single. He was replaced by Charlie Culberson and is day to day.
Brewers: LHP Brent Suter was placed on the 10-day disabled list with left forearm tightness. RHP Aaron Wilkerson was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. … RHP Zach Davies‘ recovery from a sore shoulder hit another snag Friday when his back tightened up during a throwing session.
TURANG TAKES OFFER
The Brewers announced they had signed first-round draft pick Brice Turang. The prep shortstop had committed to play at LSU. His father, Brian, was originally drafted by the Brewers in 1987 but did not sign.
STEWART DOES NOT
The Braves failed to sign the eighth overall pick, right-hander Carter Stewart. Atlanta will now receive the ninth pick in the 2019 draft as compensation.
Braves: Anibal Sanchez (3-2, 2.89 ERA) gets the ball on Saturday. He has pitched well this season, but carries a 6.37 ERA in eight career starts against the Brewers.
Brewers: With Milwaukee’s starting rotation thinned due to injury, Wilkerson will take the mound for his first start this season and third of his career.
OWINGS MILLS http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/oshane-ximines-jersey , Md. (AP) — For the first time since the Ravens came to Baltimore, someone other than Ozzie Newsome will have the final say during the NFL draft.Rookie general manager Eric DeCosta will be hard-pressed to duplicate the initial draft of his predecessor, who selected Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis with the first two picks in franchise history.Ogden and Lewis ended up joining Newsome — an outstanding tight end with the Cleveland Browns — in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Newsome proved to be equally adept in evaluating college talent, building two Super Bowl champions after becoming the first African-American general manager in NFL history.Newsome will serve as an adviser in the draft room late this month.“Ozzie is watching tape. We still talk about players,” coach John Harbaugh said. “In the end, though, it will be Eric’s call, and that’s good. I think Eric has had a huge impact on the draft up until now. He’s been a big part of it.”DeCosta moved up the corporate ladder after joining the Ravens at an entry level position in 1996, their first year after moving from Cleveland. Now that he’s in charge, there’s no telling what might happen when it comes time for Baltimore to make its first-round selection.“If there’s a great player there at 22, we’ll make the pick Julian Love Jersey , and we’ll be very, very excited,” DeCosta said. “But one thing we’ve shown over the past years is we know how to manufacture picks. So, if the opportunity is there, we’ll have a chance to trade back and accumulate picks.”The Ravens dealt their second-round choice to Philadelphia during the 2018 draft to get quarterback Lamar Jackson at No. 32 overall. So, as it stands now, Baltimore’s second pick is 85th overall.Some things to know about the Ravens’ expectations for the 2019 NFL draft:GOOD HANDS NEEDEDThe elusive Jackson operates a ball-control offense that likes to stay on the ground. But he’s got to pass to keep the opposition honest, and the Ravens are looking for a physical receiver or two to fill the holes left by the departures of Michael Crabtree and John Brown.Newsome, unfortunately, had several misfires in selecting wide receivers. He took Travis Taylor with the 10th overall pick in 2000, Mark Clayton at No. 22 in 2005 http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/darius-slayton-jersey , and Breshad Perriman in the first round in 2015.D.K. Metcalf of Mississippi, whom DeCosta compared with Terrell Owens, has the potential to be a star if he’s available when the Ravens are on the clock.“He’s big and fast. He’s caught a lot of touchdowns, a lot of big plays,” DeCosta said. “He’s a guy that we’re looking at.”GET THE QBLosing Terrell Suggs and Za’Darius Smith to free agency leaves the Ravens desperate to find someone capable of ringing up sacks. DeCosta believes the talent runs deep for players fitting that description.“Pass rusher is a very strong position, whether that’s defensive end or outside linebacker,” he said.Brian Burns of Florida State and Jaylon Ferguson of Louisiana Tech are strong pass rushers worth adding to the NFL’s top-ranked defense in 2018.NO TIME TO WAITBaltimore’s top four picks last year — tight end Hayden Hurst, Jackson, tackle Orlando Brown Jr. and tight end Mark Andrews — all played key roles on a team that won the AFC North. So did sixth-round pick Bradley Bozeman, a utility player on the offensive line.DeCosta is looking for that kind of production from his first draft.“Last year was a great example of bringing guys in who could play right away and help us become the best team we can be,” he said. “We have to do that again.”STRIKING GOLDThe Ravens could be very busy during the final two days of the draft. They currently own two selections in the third round Quinnen Williams Jersey , two in the fourth, one in the fifth and two in the sixth.Newsome snagged seven-time Pro Bowl guard Marshall Yanda in the third round (2007), standout tight end Dennis Pitta in the fourth round (2010), and quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the sixth round (2011).“We have a great opportunity this year to draft players, and those third-round picks and those fourth-round picks, those are gold for us this year,” DeCosta said. “Having four picks in those two rounds, that’s an ideal situation to be in.”
