Miami has positioned itself to win series of late, but has been unable to put games away late. With a 4-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday afternoon, the Marlins won their first series since the middle of August.

Brad Hand was solid through six innings, not allowing a run while striking out three.

Miami offensively first got on the board in the bottom of the fifth against Julio Teheran. With two outs, Garrett Jones doubled before Jarrod Saltalamacchia's RBI single gave the Marlins a 1-0 edge.

Continuing to have good swings, the Marlins were able to add three runs in the bottom of sixth. Christian Yelich and Donovan Solano singled to open the frame before a Marcell Ozuna two-RBI double and Saltalamacchia sacrifice fly gave Miami a four run lead that wouldn't be lost.

Chris Hatcher and Mike Dunn were solid in relief before A.J. Ramos closed things out for the Marlins. Miami begins a four game series with the Brewers on Monday night.
