The Atlanta Braves rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the eighth inning, but Tyler Matzek allowed three runs in the 10th to send them to a 6-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs. Charlie Morton struggled again and didn’t make it out of the third inning. Atlanta’s offense was quiet for most of the night before Dansby Swanson singled home two with the bases loaded in the eight. The Cubs didn’t waste any time in the 10th getting to Matzek and a Patrick Wisdom home run put the game out of reach.
The series will wrap up Thursday before the Braves head out on a road trip that will take them to Texas and New York.
