The Miami Marlins faced off against the Atlanta Braves in a tough matchup that ultimately ended in a 6-4 loss for the Marlins. This marks the third consecutive loss to the Braves and puts the Marlins on a four-game losing streak.

Despite the loss, the Marlins got off to a strong start with Jesus Sanchez hitting a home run in the second inning, giving the team an early lead. Jazz Chisholm Jr. continued his impressive performance, hitting his fifth home run of the season in the third inning to extend the Marlins’ lead to 2-0. Avisail Garcia added to the lead with another solo home run in the fourth, making it 3-0 in favor of the Fish.

The Braves fought back in the sixth inning, with a Ronald Acuna Jr. home run and a Vaugh Grissom RBI single, bringing the score to 4-2. The Braves then gave up a bases-loaded walk that allowed Garrett Cooper to score, giving the team a 4-0 lead.

However, the Braves weren’t done yet. In the eighth inning, Matt Olson hit a home run to cut the lead to one. Eddie Rosario then followed with an RBI triple, tying the game at four apiece. The Braves continued their momentum and scored two more runs, ultimately securing a 6-4 victory over the Marlins.

This loss marks the first blown save by the Marlins bullpen this season, and the team now sits one game away from a four-game sweep by the Braves. Additionally, this loss brings the Marlins’ record below .500 for the first time since April 12.

Overall, while the Marlins put up a strong fight early on, the Braves were able to come back and secure a victory. The Marlins will look to bounce back in their next matchup and put an end to their losing streak.
