MLB: Atlanta Braves at Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves wrapped up their six-game road trip on a high note Sunday with a 6-4 win over the Miami Marlins. Atlanta went just 2-4 on the trip but were able to avoid a sweep and improved to 2-5 against the Marlins this season. Austin Riley reached base five times and hit his 12th home run of the season in the win. Drew Smyly allowed two runs over five innings. Ironically, the both of the Braves’ wins during the road trip came in games that were started by Smyly.

Atlanta is 30-33 on the season and will enter play Monday five games back of the Mets and two back of the Phillies. The will host the Red Sox for a brief two-game set starting Tuesday before the Cardinals come in for a four-game series that will get underway on Thursday.
