Holders of the first rank of the teams drafted at the start of the day, a half game ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays and the Seattle Mariners, the Florida team continued their rise thanks, among other things, to a six-point surge in the seventh inning. .

The crowd favorites were already leading 3-1 when Christian Bethancourt started his offensive momentum with a solo homer. Bethancourt was even able to come back to the plate a second time during that turn at bat. With the bases loaded, he hit a two-run single.

Yandy Diaz (one point) and Taylor Walls (two points) also participated in this productive assault.

On the mound, Corey Kluber had no difficulty signing the win, he who gave the only opposing point on one of the five strikes in a safe place that he allowed, a long ball from Mike Trout. The gunner was finally replaced after six rounds of work, he who made three opponents bite the dust.

Fried muzzles the Pirates

Atlanta Braves pitcher Max Fried gave the Pirates batters no chance Tuesday in Pittsburgh, helping them win 6-1.

In eight innings of work, the 28-year-old athlete only made one mistake, in the second inning, when he allowed a solo home run to Michael Chavis. Fried (12-4) finally left the mound after eight good innings of work, allowing only three strikes to the safe place and a free pass, in addition to passing seven opponents in the mitt.

Offensively, the Braves excelled in the fifth inning, producing five of their six runs in that turn at bat. Travis d’Arnaud, Vaughn Grissom, Robbie Grossman, Dansby Swanson and Austin Riley all drove in a run.

Riley completed the scoring for the winners with a single in the seventh inning.
