LHP Sammy Long took a no-decision on Sunday when he allowed six runs on six hits with two walks and three strikeouts as the Giants lost to the Braves 9-0.
Anthony DeSclafani started this game, his first appearance since coming off the IL, but exited in the fourth inning with an apparent injury. Long came on in relief but struggled mightily, surrendering six runs over his 4 2/3 innings. He coughed up a two-run triple to Eddie Rosario and a solo homer to Ozzie Albies as part of the onslaught. The poor outing raised his ERA to 5.63 to go along with a 1.25 WHIP over 38 1/3 innings on the year.

He pitched extremely well against the slumping Mets, shitting them down over his five-plus innings. It's unknown if he'll get another start but he deserves another look after this performance. He now owns a 4.81 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 35:11 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings (nine games, five starts).
