Max Fried throws shutout as Braves top Marlins

Max Fried threw a shutout and earned his fifth straight win against Miami, as the Atlanta Braves rolled to a 5-0 win over the visiting Marlins on Tuesday.

Atlanta has won the first two games of the series and the Braves have won eight of their past nine games. The Braves are 4-1 against Miami this season.

Fried (2-0) needed only 92 pitches and allowed three hits, no walks and struck out six in beating Miami for the second time this season. It was the fifth career complete game and fourth shutout for the left-hander. This season, Fried has pitched 15 1/3 innings and allowed only one run against the Marlins.

Fried ran into trouble once. In the seventh inning, the Marlins had runners at first and second base with no outs. But Fried got Josh Bell to ground into a double play and induced Avisail Garcia to ground out, ending the inning.

Miami starter Trevor Rogers (0-3) continued to struggle against the Braves. He pitched 5 2/3 innings and allowed five runs (three earned) on seven hits and one walk, striking out four. He dropped to 0-7 in his career against the Braves.

Atlanta scored two unearned runs to take a 2-0 lead in the second inning. After Miami third baseman Otto Lopez made a fielding error on a possible double-play ball, the Braves got an RBI double from Michael Harris II and a sacrifice fly from David Fletcher.

Atlanta added three more runs in the fifth inning and took a 5-0 lead. Travis d’Arnaud had a sacrifice fly and Adam Duvall followed with a two-run homer, his second of the season.

D’Arnaud, who had hit five homers over the past four games, did not go deep but finished 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI.

The Marlins were shut out for the second straight game and for the third time this season. Miami has not scored a run over the past 20 innings.
