Braves Foltynewicz doesn't allow A's hit through 6 innings

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Mike Foltynewicz of the Atlanta Braves hasn't allowed a hit to the Oakland Athletics through eight innings Friday night.

The right-hander struck out eight, walked four and threw 63 of 110 pitches for strikes.

He retired the first 12 batters in order before a leadoff walk to Khris Davis in the fifth. He then recorded three straight outs to keep the no-hit bid intact.

In the sixth, Foltynewicz plunked Franklin Barreto with one out, then walked Matt Joyce. Matt Olson struck out and Jed Lowrie was retired on a called third strike.

Atlanta, making its first visit to the Oakland Coliseum since the club's lone appearance in 2003, led 1-0 on Dansby Swanson's RBI double in the third.
