The Braves picked up their third consecutive Grapefruit League win on Wednesday, shutting out the Cardinals 4-0 in Jupiter, Florida. 


The story in this one was Atlanta's dominant pitching from their young guns, including starter Kyle Wright. The 23-year-old hurled two scoreless innings where he surrendered just two hits, stuck out three, and didn't walk a single batter. 

It seems unlikely that Wright will open the regular season campaign with the big league club, but the Braves will surely keep tabs on his progress as ​their ​fifth spot in the rotation is still presently unclear


On the other hand, the Braves got more of the same from the rest of their young pitchers who entered following Wright's departure. Kolby Allard added two scoreless innings of hitless ball, and Joey Wentz and Kyle Muller followed suit. 

Atlanta relied on small ball for offense on the afternoon, as their bats never really got going (though ​Ozzie Albies quite literally left his mark), with runs scoring on an error, a single, a wild pitch, and sacrifice fly. 


The Braves will look to extend their winning streak on Thursday against the Tigers.
