Braves outslug Cubs for 6-5 win
(CHICAGO) - Nobody expected 5 foot 9 Ozzie Albies to be among the major league home run leaders. Same with the Atlanta Braves' rise to the top of the NL East. Albies hit a leadoff drive for his 13th homer, Jose Baustista connected for a three-run shot and the Braves held off Chicago 6-5 on Monday. Julio Teheran (4-1) pitched six innings and Tyler Flowers hit his first homer this season as NL-leading Atlanta (25-15) won for the sixth time in seven ga mes. The Braves moved 10 games over .500 for the first time since July 28, 2014. A.J. Minter worked a shaky ninth inning for his second save. He hit Ian Happ to force in a run with two out, but Kris Bryant lined out to left to end the game. Chicago closed out a 5-2 homestand with its second straight loss. Bryant and Albert Almore Jr. each hit a two run homer, but Jose Quintana (4-3) allowed all three Atlanta homers after pitching six sparkling innings against Miami in his previous start. The 21 year old Albies tied Manny Machado, Mookie Betts and Bryce Harper for the major league lead in homers. He also doubled and singled in the win.
