CINCINNATI (AP) — Kyle Muller earned his first career victory, Ronald Acuña Jr. and Austin Riley hit solo homers, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 to split a four-game series.
Muller was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett before the game to make his second career start.
He retired the first seven batters he faced and cruised through five scoreless innings, allowing one hit with a career-high nine strikeouts.
Five relievers followed Muller, with only Shane Greene allowing a hit, to complete the two-hitter.
Ender Inciarte’s catch against the wall in center robbed Joey Votto of an extra-base hit off Greene in the eighth.
