The Atlanta Braves picked up a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night in the middle outing of a three-game set at Dodger Stadium in LA, evening the series at a game apiece.
Offensive highlights included a solo home run by Travis d’Arnaud off Walker Buehler that got the Braves on the board in the top of the second inning.
Max Fried, a Southern California native, notched his first win of this season after giving up just two hits, walking none, and striking out eight over seven scoreless innings of work. Kenley Jansen secured the save against his former team – by retiring Freddie Freeman.
