Slumping Braves embark on two-city trip to rivals Philadelphia Washington

Brian McCann homered and had two hits to lift the visiting Atlanta Braves to an easy 9-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday in the opener of a three-game series.

Segura's solo shot in the seventh cut the lead to 9-2. First pitch in the contest was scheduled for 7:05 pm ET.

The protests have often escalated into violence as the protestors clashed with security officers. Their position is blatantly false & deceptive.

Ronald Acuna Jr. added two hits and three RBIs for the Braves. Sean Newcomb (4-1) got the last out of the fifth to pick up the victory.

Duvall was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday to replace veteran Nick Markakis, who was placed on the injured list with a fractured wrist. Across his 69.1 innings and 3-5 record this year, Gausman has a 5.71 ERA with 72 Ks and 24 BBs. Gausman picked up the win in his last start, which came at home against the Nationals last Sunday. He gave up eight hits and one run. The team "fought back" after being down 14-1 through five innings, but that means nothing to me. He is 0-2 with a 5.51 ERA, a 1.714 WHIP, six walks and 15 strikeouts over 16.1 innings in three career starts against the Phillies.

Meanwhile, the Phillies are 4-0 in their last four Sunday games and 5-2 in their last seven in game three of a series. Acuna extended his career-long on-base streak to 31 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the majors. The Phillies entered Saturday third in the NL East, 6.5 games behind Atlanta: they were one game behind the second wild-card spot.
