Brandon Beachy is really good.
Beachy was fantastic for Atlanta, giving up only two hits and no runs in 7.1 innings of work while walking three and striking out six. After struggling some in his past few outings, he was vintage Beachy tonight and Atlanta is glad to have that version back.
Hensley was just as solid for Florida, but unraveled in the seventh inning against the Braves. Martin Prado started the frame with a single and advanced to third on a single from Freddie Freeman to put runners on the corners with no outs.
After a mound visit, Hensley faced Dan Uggla, who crushed a slider to center field for a three-run homer to give the Braves a 3-0 lead.
That ended Hensley's night, who drew the loss after going seven innings, giving up the three runs and five hits while walking none and striking out three.
Atlanta increased the Marlins deficit in the bottom of the eighth against former Brave Michael Dunn. Brooks Conrad doubled with one out and scored when Jose Constanza's grounder found a hole for his first major league hit. That gave Atlanta a 4-0 lead.
A Prado single advanced Constanza to third and put runners on the corner for Freeman, who hit a liner to left fielder Logan Morrison that allowed Constanza to score and end the scoring at 5-0 in favor of Atlanta.
Scott Linebrink pitched a scoreless ninth inning to finish off the win for Atlanta.
