MLB: Atlanta Braves at Chicago Cubs Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves wrapped up their road trip in grand fashion with a 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday. Atlanta goes 6-1 on the road trip and will return to SunTrust Park on Tuesday for three more against the Cubs.

Ozzie Albies got things off on a good note with a lead off home run to right center against Jose Quintana. The homer was his 13th of the season which ties him for the lead in the National League. Albies finished with three hits on the day including his 14th double.

After Chicago took the lead back in the second, Tyler Flowers answered with his first home run of the year, a two-run shot to put Atlanta back in front 3-2.

The Cubs retook the lead again in the third but Jose Bautista put Atlanta back in front for good with this three-run bomb into the bleachers in left field.

Ender Inciarte has been doing it with the bat of late but he came up big with his glove here taking a hit away with a nice sliding grab and then throwing a strike back to first for the double play.
