Stephen Strasburg shuts down Braves, 4-1

For the second night in a row, the Braves ran into a dominant pitcher and saw their offense get stymied. We were all wondering what it would take for the Braves offense to slow down after they got off to a surprisingly hot start to the 2018 season. As it turns out, they just needed to run into two top-level pitchers in two consecutive nights as Stephen Strasburg picked up right where Max Scherzer left off. While Strasburg didn’t throw a complete game shutout, it was still more than enough to send the Braves back to the hotel with a 4-1 defeat. In what was a near carbon copy of the first...
