Atlanta Braves southpaw Kolby Allard left Sunday’s start against the visiting Chicago White Sox after 1 2/3 innings with what the team called left shoulder tightness
Allard gave up four runs in the second inning, two on a home run by Jake Burger, before going out after back-to-back RBI singles by Tim Anderson and Luis Robert Jr.
Allard, 25, was making his fourth appearance of the season and his third start. He entered the game with no decision and the four runs took his ERA from 4.22 to 6.57 in 12 1/3 innings.
Collin McHugh replaced Allard and got a line drive off the bat from pinch hitter Gavin Sheets to end the inning with runners at first and third.
