Todd Frazier greeted Newky with a long home run to cut the score to 5 – 4. After hitting Robinson Cano with a pitch and allowing a single to Amed Rosario, Newcomb got a couple of quick outs, then yielded to Minter, who could not record an out. A.J.’s final line was a walk and 2 hits, 2 runs and 2 Grybos.
Max Fried struck out 6 and walked 1 in his 5 innings, but gave up 8 hits and 3 runs. Chad Sobotka, recalled for the injured Anthony Swarzak, threw 2 strong innings, allowing 1 hit, walking none, and striking out 3.
June is built, and the Braves stand at 50 – 35 with a 5.5 game lead over the Phillies. Meet the Mets.
The Braves finish the road trip at 6 – 4. Philadelphia comes to town Tuesday at 7:20, as the Braves kick off a 6 game homestand that will carry them to the All-Star break. Dallas Keuchel vs. Nick Pivetta scheduled.
