Ian Anderson With Dominating Pitching Effort in Braves 5-0 Win Over the Cubs
ATLANTA (AP) – Ian Anderson allowed one hit in seven innings, Ronald Acuña Jr. hit a long home run and the Atlanta Braves beat the skidding Chicago Cubs 5-0. Anderson won his second consecutive start, after throwing 6 2/3 shutout innings in a 4-1 win at Yankee Stadium. He walked only one Cubs batter and struck out eight. With one out in the fifth, Acuña connected on a belt-high fastball from Trevor Williams to snap a scoreless tie. The drive traveled 481 feet and landed near the top of the seats in left-center field.
