Snitker said he didn’t know which pitch Allard felt it on, so Allard could have thrown with the tightness. Allard was not available postgame.
Collin McHugh came in in relief. He stranded the runners, as pinch hitter Gavin Sheets lined out on the first pitch he saw. Six Braves pitchers threw in the game, which the Braves lost, 8-1.
Allard’s ERA rose to 6.57. He was in his third appearance of the year after suffering an oblique strain in spring training. He made two appearances for Triple-A Gwinnett and started for the Braves against the Twins, but threw only 72 pitches in his return to the majors.
