The Braves won the series opener at home against Arizona 6-2. Ian Anderson had a much needed dominant start with 6.0 innings of scoreless one hit ball with 9 strikeouts and only 1 walk. William Contreras hit two homers, Matt Olson homered again and Eddie Rosario showed some life with a triple and a walk. Hopefully they can overcome their “series finale/Sunday/day game” blues on Sunday behind Max Fried.
