The Atlanta Braves snapped Tampa’s eight-game winning streak Tuesday night with a 9-5 win. Ender Inciarte and Ozzie Albies had big days at the plate combining for seven hits while Tyler Flowers came through with a clutch home run on the same day that he signed a contract extension with the club. With a Phillies’ loss to the Nationals on Tuesday, the Braves now lead the NL East division by 4.5 games.
