The Atlanta Braves beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 on Tuesday evening in the middle outing of a three-game interleague set at Camden Yards in Baltimore, which evened the series at a game apiece.
Highlights included a solo home run from Adam Duvall in the top of the third inning. It was his 10th homer of this month and his 15th of the season.
Freddie Freeman had three hits and drove in a couple of runs. Marcell Ozuna and Dansby Swanson had an RBI each.
That win, coupled with a Miami Marlins loss, gave Atlanta a three and a half game lead in the National League East.
