Atlanta Braves at Florida Marlins Series Recap

Atlanta earned a three-game sweep of the Marlins, and not a whole lot went wrong for the Braves during the series.

Brandon Beachy pitched great in game two of the series, striking out ten batters in 6.2 innings while giving up only two runs even though he earned a no-decision. 

Dan Uggla went 5-14 in the game series and had a hit in each game to extend his hitting streak to 31 games. 

After scuffling of late, Martin Prado racked up seven hits and four RBI's during the three-game series.

Scott Proctor gave up a two-run homer and forced Atlanta to use Craig Kimbrel in game one of the series. After getting undue chance after undue chance, Proctor finally was released by Atlanta on Wednesday.

Highly-touted prospect Arodys Vizcaino got called up to replace Proctor and made his major league debut in the third game of the series. Vizcaino battled nerves but showed that he has insanely good stuff on the mound.

Jose Constanza accumulated five hits and two steals in the series as he continues to take playing time from Jason Heyward, who started only one game in the series.

Up next: Atlanta heads back home to Turner Field to take on the Cubs in a three game series.
