The Atlanta Braves are back in the thick of things, leading the National League. They’re about to make a serious run.

토토사이트 Atlanta recently activated ace Max Fried, 28, from the disabled list. The return of the ace comes about three months after his early May departure.

It worked. Although they lost the three-game series, they won the first game against the Cubs, who have been playing very well lately.

In his last start against the Cubs on May 5, Fried showed that he’s clearly recovered from his injury. He threw six scoreless innings with perfect command of his pitches and struck out eight.

The Cubs offense, which has been on a tear lately, was unable to capitalize on Freed’s pitches. In games two and three, he shut down Bryce Elder and Charlie Morton.

Atlanta continued to groan with injuries to its mound resources. Early on, Fried and Kyle Wright went down, and key pieces of the bullpen went on the disabled list.

Instead, the Atlanta mound held on by the skin of its teeth, backed by one of the best offenses in the majors. The result: a major league leader.

Now, the entire Atlanta mound is set to return. Already, Fried and A.J. Minor are back, with Wright and bullpen staple Dylan Lee getting ready to return.

The offense remains explosive in this situation. Ronald Acuña Jr, Matt Olson, and Austin Riley are on pace to break the major league record for most home runs in a single season.

Two-hit harmony. After surviving the first half and the early part of the second half with their strongest offense, Atlanta could be devastating if their existing pitching staffs come to life.

Of course, the Major League Baseball postseason system is different from Korea’s, so even a dominant regular season team can slip up in the Division Series (DS).

But the batting power Atlanta has shown this season, coupled with ace Freed and emerging mound talent, is a force to be reckoned with.
