I’m a big fan.”A.J. Minter worked a shaky ninth inning for his second save in the makeup of an April 15 rainout.

It’s always nice to get him on the ropes a little bit, get a couple runs across and give Julio something to work with.”Almora went deep in the second, and Bryant connected in the third, but the Cubs were unable to keep up with the slugging Braves.
Flowers, Quintana’s former batterymate with the Chicago White Sox, hit a two-run shot in the third, a towering drive over the wall in left-center. Bautista lifted Atlanta to a 6-4 lead in the fifth, belting a drive to left for his second homer since joining the club on May 4.
