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 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.
