Braves place struggling Colon on DL with left side strain

"That's their decision. But overall I felt good".

Atlanta (24-31) managed four runs on eight hits Monday night at home, but it was over early as veteran starter Bartolo Colon game up a game's worth of runs in a short start.

"I don't think it's a huge issue, but I kind of feel like there's something going on that's not allowing him to perform the way he's capable", said Braves manager Brian Snitker. But the way his career's been, you'd nearly completely expect him to come out in his next start and allow four runs over five innings.

Matt Kemp and Matt Adams had back-to-back singles with one out against Hector Neris. Herrera went to third on Kendrick's single and scored when Jaime Garcia was called for a balk on a pickoff play to first.

Kendrick had three hits, scored a run and stole a base.

The Braves jumped on Nola for a run in the first.

The Atlanta Braves have placed right-handed starting pitcher Bartolo Colon on the 10-day disabled list due to a left oblique strain, according to the Braves' official Twitter account.

Mackanin said he was not ready to announce Neshek would take the closer's role from Neris. "It doesn't have the same action he had previous year and we've got to figure that out", he said.

He retired eight consecutive batters after giving up a first-inning run and retired the final 11 batters he faced. The over is 9-3-1 in Atlanta last 13 on grass and the over is 6-2 in Atlanta last 8 Wednesday games while Atlanta are 6-13 in their last 19 home games.

Garcia (2-4) pitched 7 2/3 innings, the third time in four starts that he's pitched at least seven innings.

The 44-year-old, who signed a one-year deal with the Braves over the winter, has gone 2-7 over his first 12 starts, posting an alarming 7.78 ERA.

Foltynewicz pitched seven innings against the Phillies on April 23 and did not figure in the decision when he allowed one run on four hits with nine strikeouts.
