Sims struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.41 ERA and 1.36 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Sims has been unsurprisingly inconsistent during his first stint in the majors, though the seven strikeouts are a positive after he didn't record more than four in any of his first five starts following his Aug. 1 promotion.
Aug. 23 10:23 PM PT11:23 PM MT12:23 AM CT1:23 AM ET1:23 ET5:23 GMT13:23 10:23 PM MST12:23 AM EST12:53 AM VEN9:23 UAE12:23 AM CT-Lucas Sims improved to 2-3, allowing three hits and two walks over 6.0 scoreless innings, as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Seattle Mariners 4-0 on Tuesday. Sims struck out four, ending the game with a 4.13 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After being introduced to the majors with a three-start losing streak, Sims has won his past two while yielding just two runs in 11 innings. The 23-year-old should be entering his next start with plenty of confidence, even more so because it comes against the MLB-worst Phillies.

Sims struck out three, ending the game with a 4.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Sims, a first-round pick in 2012, acquitted himself reasonably well in his major league debut considering it came against baseball's hottest team. The 23-year-old, who struck out 132 batters in 115 1/3 innings at Triple A, gets a seemingly easier spot with a home date against Miami on Sunday.
