The Miami Marlins suffered a tough loss on Monday, as they fell 11-0 to the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park. The Braves were led by the impressive pitching of Spencer Strider, who came close to throwing a no-hitter against the Marlins.

Strider was on fire from the very beginning of the game, striking out 13 batters and allowing only two hits over eight innings of work. He had a perfect game going until the seventh inning, when a fielding error by Matt Olson allowed Jazz Chisholm Jr. to reach first base. Strider’s no-hitter was broken up in the eighth inning when Jean Segura hit a single to left field, but the right-hander quickly bounced back and struck out the next two batters to finish the game in style.

The Marlins struggled to get anything going against Strider, who consistently hit the high 90s with his fastball and had a slider that was equally effective. Miami managed just two hits and struck out 13 times, and their offense was shut out for the second time this season.

The Fish are now three games out of first place and will have three more opportunities against the Braves to close the gap. The marlins dropped to 12-11 and are still in third place in the NL East behind both the Braves and the New York Mets.
