Nothing doing for the Braves in the 1st, thanks to a great running catch by Castellanos in right on a hard hit ball by Freeman.

Fried settling in and retires the side in order in the 2nd. Nothing but weak contact after the first two hitters.

Braves get their first base runner after Albies reached on what should have been an error by Votto, but was ruled a hit. He was left stranded after stealing second.

No score after two.

Senzel is left stranded at 2nd for the Reds after reaching on his second hit of the day.

Still 0-0 with the Braves coming up to bat for the third time.

Got a meeting shortly, so won't be posting again for a while.
 
I'm only able to follow the game as usual on live scoreboards by MLB & ESPN play-by-play so eye witness accounts watching the game will be better on what's happening in the game.

Official rulings show Braves have no hits thru 3-innings & Albies reached base on a Red's error by 1st Base Votto in 2nd-inning. Atlanta cannot win without scoring, but at least the bats are making contact against a good pitcher, Reds best pitcher.

Reds have 3-hits total after 4-innings on only 41-pitches by Fried, 2-singles by first 2-batters in the 1st-inning & a single in the 3rd-inning.

Glad Fried seems to be back in his groove after the first two batters of game.


EDIT UPDATE below . . .


Albies gets 1st Braves hit in bottom of 4th-inning but ends with no scoring yet, tied 0-0.

Bauer is filthy. Bravos gotta take advantage when guys get on base. He is feeding breaking balls to the big right handed bats.... gotta wait back and go to right center. Easier said than done, though.
 
Thru Top of the 5th, Max Fried has retired the last 7-batters in a row on only 50-pitches, last 2-batters were strikeouts for a total of 3-K's in game for him.
 
Bottom of the 6th, Acuna doubles for Braves 2nd hit, gets moved over to 3rd base but no batter can bring him home, ending 6 with no scoring so far, 0-0.


EDIT UPDATE below . . .


Reds get 2 base runners with one on 3rd who got caught stealing home on 2-outs to end Top of the 7th, getting Fried out of jam now thru 7-innings on only 78-pitches. Hope Braves bats do not wait too late to rally for some runs, but tough Reds Bauer on the mound should be able to go thru this inning, Bauer ends 7th with 95-pitches, so far score is still 0-0.

Braves pitching did their part, Braves bats only have to deliver 1-run in the bottom of the 9th-inning to get the win.

Freddie walks.


EDIT UPDATE below . . .


Extra innings coming with Braves bats having 16-Strikeouts so far.

Wow, Matzek comes in with bases loaded & saves the day for 3rd out.

Now is as good a time as ever for Braves bats to wake up & deliver a run for the win in the bottom of the 11th-inning after striking out 17-times today.

Freddie was only starter with no strikeouts, but give the Reds pitchers their 18th-K, followed by Ozuna giving them their 19th-K.

Good start!

Charlie Clutch!
 
Ouch! Reds pitching collects 21st-strikeout. Braves gotta hold 'em going into Top of 13th-inning, score still 0-0.
