Marlins Top Braves In 9th, 4-3
ATLANTA (AP) -- Donovan Solano delivered a pinch-hit, go-ahead single off Braves closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins beat Atlanta 4-3 on Thursday night.
The Marlins, who snapped a streak of eight straight losses to the Braves with Wednesday night's 6-3 victory, won two of three in the series. Miami has won eight of its last 10 overall.
Marcell Ozuna had three hits, including a homer, and drove in two runs for Miami.
A.J. Ramos (3-2) allowed one hit with four strikeouts in two scoreless innings. Steve Cishek pitched the ninth for his 17th save.
Cishek walked Freddie Freeman to open the ninth. With one out, Giancarlo Stanton made a lunging catch of Dan Uggla's drive to the right-center gap to preserve the lead. Cishek struck out B.J. Upton to end the game.
