ATLANTA (AP) - Pinch-hitter Evan Gattis broke an eighth-inning tie with a two-run double off A.J. Ramos, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 3-1 Wednesday for their ninth win in 12 games.
Aaron Harang allowed one run and six hits in six innings with 11 strikeouts and one walk, raising his ERA from 0.70 to 0.85. Braves pitchers struck out 16 in all, giving them 41 strikeouts and five walks in the three-game series.
David Carpenter (1-0) relieved with two on and two outs in the eighth and retired Casey McGehee on a flyout.
Making his first appearance since his first blown save of the season on Monday, Craig Kimbrel retired Derek Dietrich on a flyout, then struck out Adeiny Hechavarria and Jarrod Saltalamacchia for his sixth save.
Nathan Eovaldi gave up one run - unearned - and five hits in six innings.
Miami lost two of three in the series, dropping to 1-8 on the road this year.
