The Braves had a chance to capitalize on their first weak opponent in months, and they failed to do so against the Cubs. Atlanta won just two of the four games, and neither of their losses were very closely contested. They're now 3-4 against Chicago in 2012, who entered the series with the worst record in baseball.
Game two was a different story for Atlanta. The club raked out 10 hits for 10 runs, headlined by Chipper Jones' 5-for-5 night as they won 10-3 in convincing fashion.
Atlanta will now head north to take on the last place Phillies for their final series before the All-Star Break.
