Atlanta Braves news and notes from Wednesday

The Braves won game 2 of the NLDS against Philadelphia 3-0 on Wednesday, in what was truly a crucial win to avoid the 2-0 series deficit. Ronald Acuna, Matt Olson, and Travis d’Arnaud have been big so far in the playoffs, while the rest of the offense has left a lot to be desired (although Michael Harris’ bad BABIP luck must be mentioned. It was a pretty dumb game overall, featuring 5% of the barreled outs at Truist Park from the entire season, but it was a win indeed. In other news, Spencer Strider continues to feel good and is likely to be used in the series, while Tyler Matzek had the opposite injury luck and had to get Tommy John surgery, as was announced Wednesday.
