Ian Anderson struggled early and the Atlanta Braves were unable to mount much offense in a 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was an emotional night at Truist Park as Freddie Freeman returned to Atlanta for the first time as a member of the Dodgers. The Truist Park crowd greeted him with a standing ovation as he received his World Series championship ring and then again as he made his way to the plate in the first inning. Matt Olson had two hits for Atlanta but Julio Urias was lights out for six innings for Los Angeles and then Craig Kimbrel closed the door in the ninth.
The series will continue Saturday with Max Fried matching up against Mitch White.
