Max Fried was superb again as the Atlanta Braves snapped a two-game skid with a 3-1 win over the Chicago Cubs. Fried allowed four hits and one run over six innings. Will Smith, Tyler Matzek and Kenley Jansen held the Cubs hitless over the final three frames to close out the win. Travis Demeritte got the start in right field and had a great game with a sliding catch in foul territory and a go-ahead home run in the fifth inning off of Marcus Stroman.
The series will continue Wednesday with Charlie Morton matching up against Cubs right-hander Mark Leiter Jr.
