The Atlanta Braves fell to the Chicago Cubs 6-3 in 10 innings on Wednesday night in the middle outing of a three-game set at Truist Park; that evened the series at a game apiece.
Atlanta tied it up at 3-3 on a two-run single from Dansby Swanson during the bottom of the eighth.
But the Cubs surged ahead in the top of the tenth with three runs off of Tyler Matzek, including an RBI double by Wilson Contreras and a two-run homer by Patrick Wisdom. Matzek was charged with the loss. David Robertson got the win and Rowan Wick picked up the save for Chicago.
