Preston Tucker hit a three run home run while Anibal Sanchez and Ozzie Albies took care of the rest as the Atlanta Braves opened up their three-game set at Wrigley with a 4-0 win.
Preston Tucker dealt Yu Darvish and the Cubs a big blow in the fifth with his third home run of the season, a three-run shot to make the score 4-0.
Ozzie Albies delivered a couple of big plays in the field as well. The first came in the first as he denied Cubs catcher Wilson Contreras of a hit with a nice play in the hole.
The next came in the fourth as he again goes deep into the hole with a diving stop to deny Kyle Schwarber of a hit.
Here is another angle of that diving stop as Ozzie goes full extension.
