The Atlanta Braves split make-up, scheduled games vs. Pades. Media release: As Max Fried continues to live up to the great expectations that surrounded him when the Padres drafted him in 2012, he is giving the Braves exactly what is expected from a frontline starter in the heart of a pennant race.

 

Fried dazzled yet again as he helped the Braves bounce back from a couple tough losses to claim a 4-0 win over the Padres on Friday night at Petco Park. The left-hander totaled 98 pitches while throwing a three-hit shutout and becoming the fourth Atlanta pitcher to throw multiple “Madduxes” — a nine-inning shutout that requires less than 100 pitches — in a season.

“He was awesome,” Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson said. “That was like super ace worthy, especially at this time of the year. You need a big game like that against a team that’s really talented and chasing the playoffs, as well. To do something like that is special.”

Swanson’s two-run homer in the second inning provided some early cushion for Fried and helped the Braves distance themselves from the frustration felt when they began Friday by suffering a 6-5 loss with the resumption of a seven-inning game that had been suspended in Atlanta on July 21.

  • Roster update:   The Falcons head into Sunday’s game against the Giants without two key starters. Cornerback A.J. Terrell (concussion) and receiver Russell Gage (ankle) were ruled out of this Week 3 contest at MetLife Stadium. Receiver Frank Darby (calf) was also ruled out of this contest.

    The Falcons will look to Olamide Zaccheaus and Tajae Sharpe for more production at the receiver spot, though tight ends Kyle Pitts and Hayden Hurst can line up out wide or in the slot as well. T.J. Green was the first cornerback in with Terrell hurt against Tampa Bay and could get the starting nod in this scenario. Rookie Darren Hall could be active for the first time in reserve. While Isaiah Oliver has experience playing outside, he’s expected to remain in the slot. He has played well in that role early this season.
