ATLANTA (AP) – Bryse Wilson pitched five scoreless innings, Marcell Ozuna drove in five runs with four hits that included two home runs and the Atlanta Braves clinched their third straight NL East title by beating the Miami Marlins 11-1. The Braves hit five homers, including shots by Dansby Swanson and Freddie Freeman off Nick Vincent in a five-run seventh. Wilson allowed only three hits with one walk in his first start of the season. Atlanta has not won a postseason series since 2001. Miami remains in position to earn its first playoff berth since winning the World Series in 2003.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
