Braves 5, Marlins 3

Ozzie Albies and Freddie Freeman homered in the bottom of the 7th to break a 3 – 3 tie, and the Braves take their 2nd straight series, 2 games to 1. Coupled with a Phillies loss to the Rockies, the Braves open up a 4.5 game lead in the NL East with 3 weeks to play.

Max Fried allowed only 4 hits and a walk while striking out 7, but one of the hits was a Jesus Sanchez 460′ homer to dead center field in the 2nd, and the other 3 hits were bunched in the 6th, leading to the final 2 Marlins runs.
