The Atlanta Braves split a doubleheader Sunday with the St. Louis Cardinals to wrap up a 3-3 homestand. Atlanta dropped the opener 9-1 as Adam Wainwright held the Braves’ offense in check. Ronald Acuña Jr. hit career homer No. 100 in the second game and that was the only run Atlanta would need thanks to a great performance by Drew Smyly who carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning. Luke Jackson and Will Smith locked it down to seal the win.
Next up for the Braves is a trip to New York and a critical four-game series with the Mets which will begin with a doubleheader on Monday.
