Max Fried retired Tampa Bay's first 14 batters and combined with three relievers on a four-hitter as the Atlanta Braves beat the Rays 2-1 Thursday night.
Dansby Swanson had a run-scoring single in Atlanta's two-run second inning. Fried struck out seven while allowing one run in 6 2/3 innings. The left-hander improved to 4-0 in four interleague starts.
Luke Jackson and Shane Greene combined for four outs before Mark Melancon pitched the ninth for his second save. Left fielder Adam Duvall made a diving catch on the warning track of Jose Martinez's drive off Melancon to open the ninth.
