The Atlanta Braves improved to 2-0 on their current road trip with a 6-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday night at PNC Park. Dansby Swanson homered twice while Kevin Gausman threw eight shutout innings to secure the win. The only blemish on the evening was Kurt Suzuki being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning which forced him to leave the game. The team will announce the results of X-Rays/CT Scan on Suzuki in the morning.
