On a night headlined by pitching, the Braves did just enough offensively and the end result was a 2-1 victory.

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ One more against Tampa Bay. The Atlanta Braves picked up a veteran outfielder and a hard-fought win on Wednesday, climbing back to the .500 mark for the (very) young season. On Thursday, Brian Snitker and company will aim to pick up a second straight victory and, for the second time this season, Max Fried will take the ball for Atlanta. The 26-year-old left-hander was solid in his first outing against the New York Mets, navigating five innings and only allowing two runs on two hits and two walks.

For the second straight day, the Atlanta offense showed it has not quite emerged from a longer than expected hibernation. While Mike Soroka flourished on Friday, Max Fried, besides a few flashes of pure filth, faltered after a good start to his outing Saturday.
