Gosselin Gets First Major League Hit in Braves Win

Former UVa baseball player Phil Gosselin went 2-for-4 with one run scored for Atlanta in their win Sunday over the Nationals. The former Cavalier reached on a bunt in the first inning for the first hit of his career in the majors.

Gosselin scored one of two runs for the Braves in the first inning, which proved to be all the scoring they needed in the 2-1 win. Atlanta won two of three in the series and stretched their NL East lead over the second-place Nationals to 15 1/2 games.

Gosselin was called up to the Braves on Friday from triple-A Gwinnett, becoming the 32nd former Cavalier to reach the big-leagues. He played for UVa from 2008-10, and was a fifth-round pick (164th overall) in the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft by the Braves.
