Former Marlin Marcell Ozuna hit two home runs and knocked in five Tuesday night pacing the Braves to an 11-1 victory over the Marlins. Atlanta also clinched the NL East in the process. Despite the loss, the Marlins still saw their magic number drop from five to three after the Phillies lost both ends of a double-header to the Nationals. Playoff odds are currently at 84.4 percent.

  • Starling Marte’s homer provided all of the offense for the Fish. He has been extremely valuable since coming over in a deadline deal, notes Juan Páez.
  • The latest Marlins BBQ came out Monday, wherein the guys discuss the remaining schedule and possible playoff rotation.

Up next:

The Marlins face the Braves again today at 7:10 p.m. The teams’ respective staff aces will go: Sixto Sanchez (3-2, 2.75 ERA) vs. Max Fried (7-0, 1.96 ERA).
