Max Fried, the man with the name you’d like to pun, (but you mustn’t pun) went 5 innings, and 4 relievers shut down the Cubs from there to give Fried the win in his 1st major league start. Rio Ruiz drove in 3 runs, and Freddie Freeman and Dansby Swanson joined Ruiz in collecting 2 hits. Ian Happ’s 2nd inning home run spoiled the shutout.
The Braves salvage a game from the 4 game set and return home to play Texas on Monday.
The funniest thing I ever heard about Chicago: Hit it.
