Atlanta Braves pitcher Greg Maddux, known for his impeccable control, needs just 76 pitches to throw a complete game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Maddux allows one run on five hits as the Braves beat the Cubs 4-1 in the first game of a doubleheader at Wrigley Field. Greg Maddux strikes out six batters with no walks. Maddux did not even get to a three-ball count, as only two batters got to ball two (Mark Grace in the second and Sammy Sosa in the seventh).
