Zack Wheeler had retired 17 of the first 18 men he faced yesterday, and he hit Braves leadoff man Ronald Acuña Jr. with a first-pitch fastball with two outs in the sixth.
Wheeler then issued his first walk of the game on a 3-2 pitch to Dansby Swanson.
The next batter, Matt Olson, stroked a 1-2 slider on the ground to first baseman Rhys Hoskins.
What appeared to be a makeable, inning-ending play, turned into the first run of the game when Hoskins could not make a backhand play on the ball.
The Atlanta-based official scorer awarded Olson an RBI single.
