    Max Fried sharp, Braves blank Brewers to tie NLDS at 1-all

    Milwaukee — Max Fried says his strategy in pressure situations is to avoid making too much of the moment.

    The approach that worked so well for the Atlanta Braves left-hander in the regular season also is paying dividends in the playoffs.

    Fried pitched six sharp innings and Atlanta’s bullpen held on after manager Brian Snitker’s quick hook, sending the Braves over the Milwaukee Brewers, 3-0, Saturday to tie their NL Division Series at a game apiece.

    The best-of-five series heads to Atlanta for Game 3 on Monday.

    “He was phenomenal — all you could ask for,” said Atlanta’s Austin Riley, who homered in the sixth inning. “He came out, pounded the zone. He’s been doing that since the All-Star break.”

    Once Fried was pulled, it got more dicey for the Braves.

    The Brewers brought the tying run to the plate against Atlanta’s bullpen in each of the last three innings but couldn’t get a key hit. They couldn’t do much of anything against Fried, who has allowed just one earned run over 29 innings in his last four starts.
