Chris Sale, Matt Olson lead Braves to shutout of Cubs


Olson doubled in a run in the first inning and then added a three-run homer off Cubs starter Jameson Taillon in the fourth. The reigning 2023 MLB home run champion seems to be rounding into form, tallying two of his five homers within the past five games. This was the third time he has recorded two extra-base hits this year and first since April 5.

Michael Harris II also halted a power drought (20 games) with his home run to begin Atlanta’s six-run fourth. Harris’s solo shot was his fourth homer of the year and first since April 19.

Sale tallied nine strikeouts and allowed just two hits over seven scoreless innings. He has worked 13 consecutive scoreless innings and limited opponents to two earned runs in 25 innings over his past four starts.
