The Atlanta Braves dropped an extra-innings matchup 4-2 to the Cleveland Guardians in eleven innings on Saturday night.

Here’s what you need to know about from the contest.

Both starters were superb

Braves starters had pitched 29.1 scoreless innings on the homestand entering tonight, and Charlie Morton didn’t break the streak. “Uncle Charlie” went seven scoreless in this one, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out six on 91 pitches (63 strikes). Morton picked up 16 whiffs (with five on the changeup)  and put up a 32% CSW, showing that while he’s not as good as he once was, he can be as good once as he ever was.
