Beachy Strikes Out 11, Braves Complete Sweep Of Jays

This Beachy kid...he seems to be pretty good at throwing a baseball.

Brandon Beachy struck out a career-high 11 hitters as the Braves completed a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays with a 5-1 win.

Beachy was making his first start after being sidelined with a strained oblique muscle and looked incredible. He struck out the side in the first inning after giving up a leadoff single to Yunel Escobar and struck out two in each of the next four innings. Beachy really only made one mistake in the game, and Jose Bautista hit it for a solo home run in the third inning, his 22nd of the season.

In support of Beachy, the Braves smacked a couple of home runs of their own. Dan Uggla blasted a two-run homer in the second inning off starter Jo-Jo Reyes and Brian McCann added one in the third. Brooks Conrad smacked a pinch-hit home run in the seventh inning, but only after replays confirmed it; the ball glanced off the top of the outfield wall and struck the wall behind it before bouncing back onto the field.

Bautista robbed Jordan Schafer of what would've been Atlanta's fourth home run of the game immediately after Conrad hit his in the seventh.

Beachy allowed only four hits in six innings and walked two. The bullpen again provided scoreless relief with Linebrink, Venters and Kimbrel throwing one inning each.
