Marlins Avoid Sweep, Beat Atlanta 3-1.

Sorry for the late game recap everyone, we had a terrible storm here in Columbia, SC and I've been without power from about 4:15 to just a couple minutes ago.

On to the game, Atlanta managed 13 hits but could only plate one run as Florida beat the Braves 3-1 to avoid the sweep. 

The Braves scored their lone run in the first inning off Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco. Jose Constanza hit a double to right field to start the frame. A Martin Prado single advanced Constanza to third and put runners on the corners for Freddie Freeman. Freeman grounded into a double play, but Constanza scored on the play to give Atlanta an early 1-0 lead.

Florida tied the game up in the second inning against Tommy Hanson. Hanson walked Hanley Ramirez to start the inning. Ramirez then stole second and advanced to third on a fly ball from Gaby Sanchez. Mike Stanton singled to center field, scoring Ramirez and knotting the game at one. 

The Marlins took the lead for good in the third inning. Omar Infante hit a lead-off single, and scored on a double to the right field wall from Greg Dobbs to make it a 2-1 game. 

The scoring ended in the fifth inning, as Emilio Bonifacio hit a home run just inside the right field foul poll make it a 3-1 game in favor of Florida.

Nolasco gave up 12 hits, but Atlanta struggled to capitialize on them, going 2-11 with runners in scoring position. 

Now, on to Washington, where Braves fans get to see new acquisition Michael Bourn in action.
