Atlanta fell short of accomplishing a sweep of the Marlins, but won two of the three games in the series. Some notes from the three game set.
Brandon Beachy is really good. In 7.1 innings Friday night, Beachy gave up only two hits and three walks while striking out six and giving up no runs. After struggling in his past couple of starts, Beachy was back to normal which is very good for Atlanta.
Dan Uggla crushed his former team at the plate. Uggla only had one hit in each of three games, but two of those were three-run homers. He also kept alive his now 22 game hitting streak.
Martin Prado racked up the hits in the series. At the plate, he was 7-13 with an RBI and two runs scored.
Atlanta cranked out 12 hits against Ricky Nolasco, but only managed to score one run off of him in Sunday's finale.
Jose Constanza and J.C. Boscan both got their first major league starts and first major league hits this weekend, so congratulations to both of them.
Freddie Freeman accumulated five hits in the series and now has a 15 game hitting streak.
Eric Hinske hit a home run in game two of the series and also made a key fantastic catch in left field in the first game of the series.
Atlanta heads to Washington for a three-game series against the Nationals. Also, HAPPY MICHAEL BOURN DAY.
