FINAL: #Braves 12, #Twins 7. ATL evens the series. HRs from Acuña (28) & Freeman (28). Four-hit night for Ozzie Albies (4-6, 3 R, 2 RBI). Acuña & Freeman w/ three-hit nights. Acuña scored four times. Folty- 5 1/3 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 7 K in first start back. Fried tomorrow. 67-48.
If the @Braves
get “Good Folty” back for the stretch run, it’ll be the biggest transaction of the 2019 season. #ChopOn
Folty's slider looking REAL nice. 🤩
I like this new, not a little bitch Folty
Welcome back, Folty! 🙌
The #Braves right-hander pitches a scoreless first inning as he protects an early lead.
If Folty keeps this up, “Don’t be a little bitch” bracelets are going to be the most popular item of the Christmas season
Gonna go ahead and say the 30 minute layover for Folty didn’t help him
MLB Network: “Folty, what did you work on in the minors that has turned you around?”
Folty: “I focused on how to stop being a little bitch.”
MLB Network: (crickets)
IDGAF about the last inning - Folty had just hit his groove before having to sit for half an hour. So happy he’s back and can’t wait to see him back on the mound in five days.
In before the Folty haters show up. He was masterful before he sat in the dugout and watched an entire episode of The Simpsons before taking the mound again. He looked fantastic. #DBALB
Final: #Braves even up the series, taking game two by a score of 12-7. Acuña homered on the first pitch of the game and had 3 hits with 4 runs scored, Freeman hit his 28th and drove in 4, while Folty allowed 3 ER over 5.1 IP in his return.
Rubber match is tomorrow at 1:10pm ET
Braves win, 12-7. The offense teed off on Jose Berrios, which was impressive. Folty showed plenty of promise, the sixth notwithstanding. They go for a series win tomorrow. 67-48.
67-48. FOLTY IS BACK. ACUÑA, ALBIES, AND FREDDIE COMBINE FOR 10 HITS, 8 RBI, AND 9 RUNS SCORED. BERRIOS SHELLED BY AN OFFENSIVE JUGGERNAUT. LETS GOOOOOOOOOO https://t.co/FhDCdMzrw6
Cruz homered on a 1-1 95-mph fastball, Garver on a 2-1 hanging slider.
Folty's line: 5 2/3 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 7 K. Threw 64 strikes in 101 pitches.
Freeman on Folty: "he looked great. The offense takes the blame for the sixth inning, we made him sit for a little bit. Getting him a lot of runs so he could settle in and get back to being himself is going to be big for us" #Braves
Braves offense gets on track, Folty shoves, Atlanta United wins and will host U.S. Open Cup final, Pache/Waters combine for five hits in Triple-A debut ... yeah, good day indeed.
And a new day arrives. Let's seize it, folks!
I can't overstate enough how good Folty was tonight. That was 2018 Folty out there tonight. Just shoved, let it rip, in that yard against that team. Could not ask for anything else out of him in his return.

Wow, what a great game! Love seeing the offense producing, but it’s even better to see Folty dealing! Ozzie had 4 hits and Freddie hit a 💣, but today’s #chopoftheday goes to @ronaldacunajr24
for his leadoff blast alongside a massive day leading us to a 12-6 W! #ChopOn
Thank you for bringing good mojo to Folty 😁
Folty with one hell of an outing and bats looked hot can’t wait to see what this team does! #gobraves
THE OFFENSE HAS RETURNED FROM ITS DEEP SLEEP/FOLTY IS BACK/ THE BULLPEN IS STILL THE SAME UP CHOP PARTY via /r/Braves https://t.co/hiyUMaveuS
Folty is beaming with confidence when talking about his slider in this post-game interview. https://t.co/d4Xt2tCKpG
1.Soroka wont win cy young but is definitely in the running, but if im snit i dont want to send him out game 1, when we have an experienced world series champion and cy young winner, and folty pitched well tonight, but when he faces adversity, he cracks. Cant have that in big gam
My acceptance of it: Reds take on rest of his $$ this season (~$2.8M), freed up 40-man spot, didn't have to ask him to accept MiLB assignment, didn't burn a BP spot with him, opened up rotation spot for Folty for tonight. I wish him all the best moving forward.
Folty looked GOOD tonight. If he’s right then he’s the best deadline pickup by any team in MLB.
