Braves bats explode in NLDS game 1 to defeat Marlins

Max Fried was clearly not at his best today surrendering 4 earned runs to Miami but that did not stop the Braves bats from showing up in the 7th inning.

Ronald Acuña Jr started the game off with a lead off homer, becoming the youngest player to do so in postseason action.

Miami would not allow that to deter them as Miguel Rojas follows up with a solo homer of his own to tie the game in the second inning. The Marlins would go on to score 3 more runs after Max Fried loses his stride a bit but that was the worst to happen to him.

Third inning: Ronald Acuña Jr reacts after HBP, something that is all too common against the Marlins

The bottom of the third inning proves to light a fire when Ronald Acuña Jr is hit by a pitch. He walks to first showing how he felt about it, prompting a warning from the umpire, and a delay as a few words were said.

The Braves erase the 4-1 Miami deficit by scoring two more runs, bringing them within one run.

Then the 7th inning arrives. Marcel Ozuna singles to bring home Austin Riley whose had himself a good game, and Travis d’Arnaud(3 run) and Dansby Swanson(2 run) would follow up with homerun bombs to help seal the Braves game one victory.

Ian Anderson will take the mound against Pablo Lopez at 2:08pm eastern on MLB Network.
