ATLANTA Royals right-hander Brad Keller pitched in front of friends and family in his home state and put on a show at the expense of the Atlanta Braves.
The day certainly belonged to the 6-foot-5, 230-pound 23-year-old from Flowery Branch, Ga. Keller, who grew up a Braves fan, pitched seven scoreless innings for the third time this season. He also contributed with the bat.
Keller set the tone as the Royals completed a sweep of their two-game series with the Braves by shutting out their hosts 2-0 in front of an announced 38,865 at SunTrust Park. Keller has now won three consecutive starts and four consecutive decisions.
