In the 10th inning, Michael Harris II doubled to bring home Ronald Acuña Jr., helping the Atlanta Braves secure a 4-3 victory over the Miami Marlins.

This came after the Braves lost their two-run lead in the ninth inning, but they managed to pull through in the end. A.J. Minter got the win, striking out Jazz Chisolm Jr. with the bases loaded.

The Braves have been performing well lately, winning nine of their last ten games. Harris praised the team’s defense for giving them a chance to win with just one run needed in the end.

Despite a tough loss, Marlins manager Skip Schumaker acknowledged the team’s effort in battling back in the ninth inning against a tough opponent. The Marlins tied the game in the ninth after Braves closer Raisel Iglesias allowed two runs, marking his first blown save of the season.

However, the Braves regained their composure, and Harris’s double-sealed the win for them. Tanner Scott took the loss for the Marlins, who have faced three sweeps this season.

Braves pitcher Reynaldo López had an impressive performance, allowing just one run and three hits in seven innings, with six strikeouts and two walks. In his first four starts with Atlanta, he has only given up two runs in 25 innings, boasting a remarkable 0.72 ERA.

Braves manager Brian Snitker praised López’s strong start, highlighting the team’s recent string of solid pitching performances. Michael Harris had a standout game, going 3 for 5 with a run scored and the decisive RBI. Marcell Ozuna also had a productive game, going 3 for 4 with two RBIs, bringing his season total to an MLB-leading 29.

For the Marlins, Sixto Sánchez made his first start since 2020 but struggled, surrendering three runs in just 2 2/3 innings. Jesús Sánchez ended the Marlins’ 21-inning scoreless streak with a powerful 430-foot home run in the second inning.

The Braves took an early lead, with Ronald Acuña Jr. drawing a walk and stealing a base in the first inning. He then scored on a balk, followed by an RBI single from Harris and a run-scoring single from Ozuna to give the Braves a 2-0 lead. Ozuna added another RBI in the third inning with a single after Matt Olson doubled, ending Olson’s 0-for-25 hitless streak.
