Burch Smith strikes out 10 in win

Padres pitcher Burch Smith baffled the Braves Sunday, pitching seven shutout innings while allowing three hits, walking two and striking out 10 to earn his first win of the season in his team’s 4-0 victory.

Smith’s overall numbers look pretty mediocre thanks to three ugly appearances in May, but he’s given up just three earned runs in 17 1/3 innings since while striking out 21 and walking seven. He’s 1-1 with a 6.57 ERA and 1.66 WHIP going into Saturday’s potential start against the Dodgers.
