The Atlanta Braves’ nine-game win streak came to an end on Tuesday night after falling to the Cleveland Guardians in extra innings, 6-5. Southpaw Kolby Allard earned the start and tossed five innings of three-run baseball.

Ozzie Albies had a huge night at the plate, launching two home runs, one to tie the ballgame in the fifth and then again in the ninth. Albies became one of eight players in the league with 22+ homers.

“I just keep grinding out there. I never put my head down and just try to make contact,” Albies said of his success at the plate. “When it’s in the zone, I have to put the barrel on it.”

“It’s an awesome feeling to help your team,” he added. “Tomorrow is a new day with a new beginning. Let’s start another win streak.”

Ozzie and the Braves look to flush their Independence Day performance and start yet another win streak with game two of the series this evening.
