The Atlanta Braves opened a six-game homestand with a loss to the Colorado Rockies by a final score of 3-2 on Tuesday night in the first outing of a three-game series at Truist Park. That marked the third straight loss for the Braves, who remain three games behind the National League East-leading New York Mets (who lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday).

The Braves took an early lead with RBI doubles from Dansby Swanson and Eddie Rosario in the second and third innings, respectively.

But the Rockies tied it up with two runs in the top of the fourth inning on an RBI single by CJ Cron and RBI double by Elehuris Montero. They took the lead on a groundout by Cron in the fifth.

Max Fried was charged with the loss for Atlanta after giving up those three runs (two earned) and seven hits, walking one, and striking out three through five innings. Jose Urena picked up the win, and Daniel Bard got the save for Colorado.

The Braves are now 79-51 on the 2022 season. They will face the Rockies again this evening at 7:20 pm. Listen locally on WLAQ 1410 AM/96.9 FM; airtime is 6:05 pm.
