Biographical Information[edit]

Al Autry of the Atlanta Braves appeared in one big league game. He was the starting pitcher in the second half of a doubleheader held on September 14, 1976, against the Houston Astros. He worked five innings, giving up all three of the Astros' runs (including two home runs). The first home run he surrendered was a solo shot by Cesar Cedeno in the 1st inning. The second came off the bat of Jose Cruz in the 5th. In total, he gave up four hits (the other two were a double to Cruz in the 2nd and a single by Cedeno in the 5th). He did walk three batters (Cliff Johnson, Cedeno and Enos Cabell) but he also managed three strikeouts as well (Bob Watson, Al Javier and Johnson). He also allowed two players to steal bases against him (Cedeno and Cabell). At the plate, Autry flew out to center in his first at-bat off of pitcher Bo McLaughlin. In his second and last at-bat of the game, he was struck out by McLaughlin. He was replaced by pitcher Max Leon at the top of the 6th and was the winning pitcher in a 4-3 Braves victory, finishing his career 1-0.
