Question of the Day
The 26-year-old right-hander, who grew up in Thomasville, Ga., rooting for the Braves, was hoping to make enough of an impression to earn another start in five days, but Acta will have to decide whether he merited another look after allowing four runs and eight hits in four labored innings.
Speigner didn’t struggle with his control the way he has on occasion out of the bullpen this season. If anything, he got too much of the plate, throwing 45 of his 58 pitches for strikes. The Braves made him pay, with three straight hits in the first to take a 2-0 lead, then stringing together three more in the fourth to add to their lead and end the rookie hurler’s evening.
“The middle of their lineup was tough today,” Speigner said. “That’s pretty much who did all their damage.”
