Cron, Ureña help Rockies hand Braves 3rd straight loss, 3-2
ATLANTA (AP) — C.J. Cron drove in two runs, José Ureña outpitched Max Fried, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2.
Since becoming a full-time starter in 2019, Fried has 50 wins, second-most in the majors to Yankees ace Gerrit Cole, and he had a 2.12 ERA in his previous 11 starts.
But the first-time All-Star wasn’t his usual sharp self. Fried allowed three runs — two earned — and seven hits with one walk and three strikeouts in five innings.
Ureña bounced back from a career-worst start to give up two runs and six hits with two walks and a season-high six strikeouts in five innings.
