Matt Olson breaks single-season franchise record in RBIs as Braves move Cubs, 5-3
The Atlanta Braves proceeded to look solid heading right into the Postseason with one more solid efficiency tonight. This time around,  the offense continued producing and the pitching personnel executed well as a cumulative as the Braves clinched homefield benefit throughout the Postseason with a 5-3 win over the Chicago Cubs. Both teams threw away no time getting their infraction going in this,  as the two groups both made it onto the scoreboard in the first inning. AJ Smith-Shawver located himself in a little little bit of difficulty as he strolled Mike Tauchman to lead off the game and after that needed to handle Tauchman in scoring placement after he swiped second. A ground out and a fielder's option later on,  the Cubs had their very first run on the board after Travis d'Arnaud was unable to place a tag on Tachman during a play at the plate. The scoring quit there R.A. Dickey Jersey,  so the Braves had a one-run deficiency to take care of when it was their turn to strike. Luckily,  Atlanta had the ability to rapidly transform it into a one-run shortage for the Cubs once their fifty percent of the initial inning rolled around. Marcus Stroman had the ability to get the first two batters of the game out yet he surrendered a single to Austin Riley with two out. That brought Matt Olson to the plate,  that had the ability to take a pitch that was low and within the area and pulled it deep to ideal area. The shrieking lining remained fair and landed in the Chop House location,  so instantly the Braves went from tracking to leading after Olson struck his 54th home run of the period. This was likewise the 136th RBI of the season for Olson,  which is a brand-new single-season franchise record for the Braves. Matt Olson has been having a remarkable period at home plate and the fact that he's currently on top of the single-season home run and RBI graphes for the Braves is evidence of that.This was the begin of a three-inning offending assault for the Braves while AJ Smith-Shawver began to get comfortable on the pile. Eddie Rosario made it to 2nd base to lead off the inning after Ian Happ bobbled what should've been a catch for an out. Rather than that being the first out of the inning,  Rosario wound up being the initial run of the inning for the Braves after Michael Harris II hit a one-out dual to make it a two-run lead for the Braves. Ronald Acua Jr. came up to the plate with two outs and knotted a 2-2 pitch right right into superficial center field to plate Harris and make it a 4-1 video game then. The 3rd inning began with Austin Riley welcoming Cubs reducer Javier Assad with a line drive deep to center area. The round overcame Mike Tauchman's head and by the time the Cubs got the ball back to the infield,  Riley got on 3rd base with a stand-up triple. Eddie Rosario went back to the plate with joggers on the edges and one out and hit a soft bouncer to Assad. Unfortunately for Chicago Kevin Pillar Jersey,  there was yet one more protective slip in this series as Assad was incapable to field the baseball cleanly and Riley was able to dash into home plate to make it a 5-1 video game. That's exactly how the video game remained up until the sixth inning,  as the Braves had the ability to make it via those six innings with AJ Smith-Shawver pitching 3.2 innings of no-hit sphere with just the one run allowed and afterwards Kyle Wright entering in alleviation and providing Atlanta 2.1 innings himself. Wright was the one who ended up acknowledging Chicago's second run of the video game after Nico Hoerner led off the frame with a single and afterwards Seiya Suzuki hit a double to obtain the Cubs back on the board for the very first time because the initial inning. Other than both runs,  this was a wonderful trip for both Smith-Shawver and Wright. Joe Jimnez pitched a tidy seventh inning to get the Braves to the eighth,  which is when A.J. Minter was called upon for alleviation responsibility. The left-handed reducer found himself in a little bit of a scenario in this framework when he remained in a scenario with runners on the edges and one out. Seiya Suzuki struck a solitary the contrary way to get the Cubs a run more detailed and likewise bring Dansby Swanson to home plate as the potential tying run. Instead,  the former Braves shortstop struck a ground round directly to the existing Braves shortstop Orlando Arcia Yonny Chirinos Jersey,  who turned a 6-4-3 dual play to finish the racking up threat and protect the lead at two runs for the Braves.Atlanta was unable to include on to the lead in the bottom of the 8th inning,  so that suggested that it was time for Raisel Iglesias to enter the game in the ninth inning for a save effort. Iglesias made no error as he shut the Cubs down in order to secure down the win and offer Atlanta their 103rd win of the period. Despite the truth that the Baltimore Orioles clinched their department with their 100th win of the period,  Atlanta's win tonight clinched the most effective record in baseball for 2023 and the top total seed for the Postseason. This might not have been as significant as the very first two video games were yet there are no area for grievances when you pull off a sweepespecially against a team that had as much to play for as the Cubs did. This was a loss that Chicago could ill manage to take but this was a win that could be very helpful for the Braves if they wind up making a deep run in October like we're all anticipating of them. This team simply keeps moving on and are currently wanting to end the period with a prosper as the Nationals enter into town for the last collection of the period tomorrow evening.
