The Atlanta Braves drop finale in Phoenix, 6-4. Media release: Instead of cruising to another win and completing a four-game sweep, the Braves were left wondering how everything seemed to go wrong so quickly in the 6-4 loss to the D-backs on Thursday afternoon at Chase Field. Carson Kelly hit a three-run homer off Jacob Webb and Daulton Varsho tallied an RBI double in the five-run seventh inning that allowed the D-backs to end this series with a comeback win. The Braves bid adieu to a four-game winning streak and a chance to strengthen their NL East lead with 11 games remaining.
