Well the Braves had another good day and another win in Wednesday behind another stellar outing from Cy Young candidate Max Fried. Austin Riley, Travis d’Arnaud, and Eddie Rosario were the offensive stars of the evening, with Rosario hitting his first homer of the season. Fried was pulled after six scoreless innings due to a tight glute, but is expected to be fine to make his next start on normal rest. Unfortunately the Mets won in extra innings, so Atlanta did not make any games in the divisional lead. Tomorrow the Moustachio’d Menace, Spencer Strider will pitch with the chance to sweep the four game series against the Cardinals against the former top prospect Matthew Liberatore.
