- OF THE SEASON
- Wei-Yin Chen was not great in this one, but passable. Five innings of work, five strikeouts, one earned run, one walk, two hits. The Braves to their credit really made him work, racking up his pitch count to 90 before he was pulled in favor of pinch-hitting Christian Yelich.
- Speaking of Yelich, he and Giancarlo Stanton sat out yet again, giving way to Ichiro Suzuki and Cole Gillespie, respectively. Gillespie would factor in heavily to Miami's only scoring of the day, driving in Derek Dietrich with a booming triple off of Aaron Blair in the second inning and coming home soon thereafter on an Adeiny Hechavarria single. The Marlins were shut out thereafter, mustering only four hits the remaining seven innings.
- The Marlins have been fairly solid defensively even with Dee Gordon absent, but today was not one of those days as Marcell Ozuna committed two errors and Martin Prado added a third.
