Fried, Riley power Braves past Phils; magic number to 1

With the Braves closing in on a department title, Max Fried wished to get where Charlie Morton ended the night prior to. Fried pitched 7 strong innings, Austin Riley drove in 3 runs, and Atlanta beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 on Wednesday night to move within one triumph of a 4th straight NL East title. The Braves have actually won 9 of 11 and minimized their magic number to one.
