ATLANTA (AP) – Jacob Turner allowed two runs in his bid for a permanent return to Miami’s rotation and the Marlins knocked Mike Minor out of the game early in their 6-5 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.
Donovan Solano had a career-high four hits and also reached on a walk as Miami took its second straight win over Atlanta to open the four-game series. Christian Yelich had two hits and scored three runs.
Turner (3-6), making his first start since June 11, gave up four hits in five innings. He loaded the bases but allowed only one run in the first inning. The other run he gave up came on Justin Upton’s third-inning homer.
Meanwhile Braves starter Mike Minor struggled giving up six runs and ten hits in just three innings. His ERA stands over five.
Miami’s Steve Cishek pitched around Chris Johnson’s leadoff single in the ninth to earn his 23rd save.
