Anibal Sanchez -- has there been a bigger surprise this season? -- had another solid outing for the Braves, leaving with a 2-1 deficit, but the Cardinals tacked on four runs in the eighth off the Atlanta bullpen. Yadier Molina capped the rally with a two-run single after an eight-pitch battle against Sam Freeman. Given some of the issues in their own bullpen, a much-needed cushion for the Cardinals.

Mike Foltynewicz pitches 6-hitter as Braves beat Giants 4-1

Mike Foltynewicz pitched a six-hitter to win for the first time in nearly a month, Charlie Culberson hit a two-run homer after entering as an injury replacement and the Atlanta Braves sent the San Francisco Giants to a 10th straight defeat with a 4-1...

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Great job by Mike Foltynewicz to throw a complete game, even if he did lose his shutout in the ninth. That's just the third one in September and the first by a pitcher on a playoff contender. In fact, pitchers on playoff contenders have pitched even eight innings just two other times this month.
