MLB Scores: Atlanta Braves 3, Miami Marlins 1

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Marlins fell to the Atlanta Braves in the final game of the three game series on Wednesday afternoon. Nathan Eovaldi was effective, but the Marlins couldn't score runs.

Looking to win the series against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday afternoon, the Miami Marlins struggled offensively and couldn't support Nathan Eovaldi in a 3-1 loss to one of their National League East rivals.

Atlanta got on the board first facing Eovaldi in the bottom of the fourth. Chris Johnson reached on an Adeiny Hechavarria throwing error and advanced to second on a wild pitch before Ryan Doumit drove him in with a single to center field, giving the Braves an early 1-0 edge.

Doumit's single led to the only run Eovaldi would give up on the afternoon. In six innings, he gave up five hits while walking one and striking out seven. Eovaldi worked out of a pair of jams in both the first and fifth innings, limiting the productivity of the Braves' lineup.

Miami got its lone run against Atlanta starter Aaron Harang in the top of the sixth. With two outs, Marcell Ozuna singled and scored on a Giancarlo Stanton double to temporarily tie the game at one.

While the Marlins went 1-7 with runners in scoring position, the Braves were able to score against the Marlins' bullpen in the bottom of the eighth.

Mike Dunn walked Johnson and gave up a single to Dan Uggla in between recording a pair of outs, and A.J. Ramos gave up a two run double to Evan Gattis to give the Braves a 3-1 lead they would hold on to.

Christian Yelich was able to extend his hitting streak to 17 games, but Craig Kimbrel shut the Marlins down in the ninth, recording his sixth save of the season.
