Braves’ Max Fried and bullpen fall just short of no-hitter against Mets

Raisel Iglesias Narrowly Misses No-Hitter

While facing J.D. Martinez, Raisel Iglesias was just one out away from securing the Atlanta Braves their first no-hitter in 30 years. Iglesias, however, was unaware of the milestone as he took the field. His focus was on his pitching and not adding unnecessary pressure on himself.

Max Fried Shines in Victory

Despite Martinez’s late home run dashing the no-hit hopes, Max Fried delivered a stellar performance that led the Braves to a 4-1 victory over the Mets. Braves catcher Travis d’Arnaud reflected that giving up a homer is preferable to an infield single.

Fried’s Near Misses

In recent weeks, Max Fried has experienced two near misses on potential no-hitters. On April 29, against the Mariners, Fried threw six hitless innings before the bid was broken up in the eighth. In the recent game against the Mets, Fried’s impressive seven-inning effort was marred by Martinez’s home run.

Near-Historic Feat

Despite falling short of the no-hitter, Fried’s performances are garnering attention. He becomes the first MLB pitcher since 2021 to throw at least six hitless innings twice within three starts, a feat last achieved by a Braves pitcher in 1999.

Impressive Turnaround for Fried

After a rocky start to the season, Fried has managed to turn things around significantly. His recent outings have showcased his true potential, with an impressive ERA over the past few games.

Harris Plays Key Defensive Role

Michael Harris II’s defensive contributions were crucial in preserving Fried’s hitless bid. His three-hit game and notable catch added to the Braves’ confidence in their ace’s resurgence.
