Braves Beat Cubs 3-2

 

BRAVES 3, CUBS 2

CHICAGO (AP) - Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. homered, Max Fried

pitched six innings of two-hit ball and Atlanta beat Chicago.

Acuna crushed the first pitch of the game from Cubs rookie Adbert

Alzolay into the left-field bleachers for his 19th homer of the

season. Albies hit a towering two-run shot to right center off Mike

Montgomery (1-2) in the seventh that gave Atlanta the lead.

Fried (9-3) struck out eight, walked a season-high five and allowed

two runs in winning his second straight start.

Relievers Sean Newcomb, Anthony Swarzak and Luke Jackson, who threw

a perfect ninth for his 12th save, combined to complete the

four-hitter.

Willson Contreras had two RBIs and fellow Venezuelan Alzolay tossed

one-hit, one-run ball through 4 2/3 innings in his first major

league start.
