Fish Wrap: Marlins 3, Braves 1

New, comments

With the help of Ricky Nolasco, the Marlins managed to salvage the final game of their series with the Braves on Sunday afternoon at Turner Field.

Ricky held the Braves to just one run in his 6.2 innings on the mound, and the lone run he allowed came in a shaky first inning. Jose Constanza doubled to lead off the inning, Martin Prado singled, and Freddie Freeman grounded into a double play, allowing Constanza to score.

After his undesirable first inning, Ricky didn't allow another run to the Braves.

The Fish tied up the game in the second inning after Hanley worked a leadoff walk and stole second base. Mike Stanton singled to plate Hanley, and the Marlins were even with the Braves.

Tommy Hanson would give up two more runs to the Fish. In the third inning, Omar Infante hit a bunt single, and Greg Dobbs doubled to score him and give the Marlins the lead.

Emilio Bonifacio added an insurance run in the fifth when he hit a solo shot--his second homer of the season--to give the Marlins a 3-1 lead. 

Leo Nunez worked a scoreless ninth inning for his 30th save of the season, and the Fish left Atlanta with at least a small shred of dignity.
