CINCINNATI (AP) — Max Fried won his eighth straight decision, Austin Riley put Atlanta ahead to stay in the first inning with his team-high 19th home run and the Atlanta Braves routed the Cincinnati Reds 9-1 on Friday night.
Dansby Swanson added a three-run homer in the seventh for the defending World Series champion Braves, who are 22-6 since the start of June to close within 3 1/2 games of the NL East-leading New York Mets.
Fried (8-2) is 8-0 in 14 starts since losing his first two outings this season. He allowed one run and five hits in seven innings with four strikeouts and no walks.
After allowing Tommy Pham’s RBI single in the third, Fried retired 10 in a row.
Ronald Acuña Jr., the top All Star vote-getter in the National League, was back in the Braves lineup after fouling a pitch off his left foot last Saturday and missing four games. He went 2 for 3 as a designated hitter and was hit by pitches twice.
Cincinnati has lost nine straight at Great American Ball Park and is an NL-worst 26-50.
Riley hit a two-run homer in the first off Mike Minor (1-5), Riley’s first long ball since he hit two against Washington on June 15. Riley added a run-scoring single in the ninth against Jeff Hoffman.
Minor allowed two runs and six hits in six innings, his first quality start this season. Atlanta piled on seven runs off Cincinnati’s bullpen, which entered with a 5.69 ERA — nearly a run higher than any other team. Swanson homered off Joel Kuhnel.
In the eighth, Adam Duvall had an RBI double and Orlando Arcia hit a two-run single against Luis Cessa.
The Reds expect to remove LHP Nick Lodolo (back strain) from the injury list and hand him the start Tuesday against the Mets. He’s been out since late April.

The Braves send RH Spencer Strider (3-2, 3.02 ERA) against Reds RHP Tyler Mahle (3-6, 4.53 ERA) on Saturday. Strider allowed five hits through six scoreless innings in a loss to the Dodgers last Sunday. Mahle tied his season high in going 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs and four hits in Sunday’s win at San Francisco.

Gabby Windey has made her final decision for which man she marry, Reality Steve said in a spoiler.
In the final episode, Windey picks Erich Schwer as her future husband after the two have emitted sparks all season.
At one point, Schwer did feel the heat when he was denied the group date rose in the 5th episode which aired on August 8.
“Like, I went into tonight feeling very good, about like, our talk, but Nate [Mitchell] got the group date rose, and we have Logan [Palmer] here now, so I don’t necessarily know like ranking-wise where I stand,” Schwer said during a private interview.READ MORE ON THE BACHELORETTEFINDING LOVE Find out who Rachel picks on The BacheloretteBACH OFF Bachelorette fan-favorite SLAMMED by ex for 'lying' & keeping a 'major secret'
“But I don’t need to be here for like eight more weeks just to see what happens. Like that’s just a waste of my time.”
Sticking it out seems to have worked because when Schwer got down on one knee, Windey said "yes."
In a post-season interview with HollywoodLife, Windey said she was happy with the way the season ended, although she did not confirm if she was engaged to Schwer.
"We’re both really happy,” Windey said, speaking about herself and Rachel Recchia.Most read in EntertainmentGONE TOO FAR?

“I think we did everything we felt was right in the moment and we stand by everything.”Who was Gabby's runner-up?
Jason Alabaster makes it to the final two but fell short of Schwer, who received the last rose.
It seemed Alabaster and Windey were on the path to an engagement as Alabaster opened up about not feeling "good enough" during their one-on-one date in Paris, France.
He told her that he had gone to therapy to learn to "speak up for what I want."
“It helped with every aspect of my life … it’s like I have my power again,” he told the leading lady," he said.
In return, Windey told him about coping with the emotions surrounding her estranged mother and said she had gone through “a ton of therapy” in order to heal.
The pair seemed compatible, with Schwer's bio reading: "He is never the loudest guy in the room, yet still somehow has an undeniable presence about him.
“He loves to surf, dance, and play tennis.”
Meanwhile, Windey had said she wanted a man who had "quiet confidence," with Alabaster appearing to fit the requirement.2Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia both appeared on The BacheloretteCredit: ABC Did Gabby and Rachel enjoy being on The Bachelorette together?
For the first time in Bachelorette history, two women took center stage for men to compete for their hearts.
Windey and Recchia had both been on the 2020 season of The Bachelor, fighting for Clayton Echard, and both were dismissed on the same day.
Having two bachelorettes was difficult for Windey and Recchia because it was the first time and they were maneuvering through unchartered waters, without much guidance.
"I think, honestly, just being in new territory for the first time and now one really knew how to give us advice, how to help us, what it was going to look like," Windey told HollywoodLife.
She continued: "So there’s just a lot of unpredictability in the human experience and you’ll be looking at it."
The women told the outlet that being chosen to be on this season of The Bachelorette made it better for them both because they each had someone to lean on when things got tough.
"It was so obvious how much it changed our journey in such a positive way by having a friend by your side," Windey said.Read More on The US SunHAMMER TIME Armie Hammer goes shirtless & reveals bizarre new tattoo in rare public outingCHICKEN WINNER I tasted 4 rotisserie chickens including Costco - there was a clear winner
"Really, you felt less alone, you felt so supported. Knowing that somebody is going through the same thing is a feeling that nobody else can really give you.
"It’s tumultuous and very emotional, so having that support system is just what you need.
