Marlins Lose Third Straight

The Marlins gave up a run in the ninth inning on Friday and lost their third straight game

The Miami Marlins continued their slide with a 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Friday.

With the game tied at two in the ninth, A.J. Ramos gave up the game's winning run. Former Marlin Emilio Bonifacio scored the winning run after stealing a base following a single. A throwing error by J.T. Realmuto allowed Bonifacio to advance to third, before being brought home by a single from Adonis Garcia.

Andrew Cashner started for Miami and turned in one of his better starts in a Marlins uniform. Cashner struck out six across five innings while allowing one run on three hits. Due to a high pitch count, Cashner's day was short and the relievers took over in the sixth.

Mike Dunn would allow a run in his inning of work for a second straight day. The Marlins were ahead by one run at the time and the inning by Dunn cost Cashner a chance at a win. David Phelps and Kyle Barraclough combined for two scoreless innings following Dunn.

The Marlins managed only three hits in the loss with one going for extra bases. Martin Prado's 37th double of the season brought home both of Miami's runs in the game. Prado now has 73 runs batted in this season.

Wei-Yin Chen will start for the Marlins on Saturday in the third game of the series against Atlanta.
