Braves’ Max Fried has no-hitter through 7 innings against Mets

Atlanta left-hander Max Fried has not allowed a hit through seven innings in Saturday’s game against the New York Mets, and the Braves lead 3-0.

Fried has struck out five and walked three. He retired the first eight batters before issuing consecutive walks to Tomas Nido and Brandon Nimmo. Fried retired the next 11 batters before walking Pete Alonso with one out in the seventh. J.D. Martinez followed with a hard-hit fly to center, that Michael Harris chased down before running into the wall. Fried then struck out Jeff McNeil.

The 30-year-old Fried has thrown a season-high 109 pitches, 68 for strikes.

The Braves have not thrown a no-hitter since April 8, 1994, when Kent Mercker accomplished the feat against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The no-hitter drought is the fourth-longest in the major leagues.
