Phillips wins it again as Braves top Marlins 5-4

Atlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins- 6/17/17 MLB Pick Odds and Prediction

Miami had runners on the corners with one out in the third when Giancarlo Stanton struck out into a double play, with J.T. Riddle being erased in a rundown while trying to score from third base.

The last Atlanta player with game-ending RBI in back-to-back games was Ozzie Virgil on September 18-19, 1988. In seven career starts against the Marlins, Garcia is 2-1 with a 3.60 ERA.

Braves: LF Matt Kemp made his first start since straining his left hamstring on Wednesday.

The winning pitcher was Jim Johnson (5-1), who pitched a scoreless ninth inning in relief.

It looked like Sunday would be a short start for Urena as he loaded the bases in the second by hitting consecutive batters after giving up a single to start things off. The Braves have won 11 games in their last at-bat, most in the majors. "When that inning started, I thought, 'Oh, snap, I think I'm going to do it again".

"I've been talking about these guys for a long time", Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said.

Marlins: Miami opens a home series against the Nationals on Monday night.

Atlanta took two of three in the weekend series - Miami's first visit to the Braves' new ballpark. RHP R.A. Dickey gave up seven runs, six earned, in his first start of the season against San Francisco, a 7-1 loss on May 28.

Danny Santana took Kemp's spot in the lineup Saturday for the second straight game.

Brandon Phillips' single drove in Johan Camargo from third base in the ninth inning to give the Atlanta Braves a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.

After walking Brandon Phillips - the hero of Atlanta's win on Saturday - Urena made a between-the-feet snare of a drive up the middle from Markakis.

Miami OF Ichiro Suzuki, who recorded a run-scoring pinch-hit single in the fifth inning Saturday, has seven hits in his last 10 pinch-hit appearances with three RBIs.

Miami Marlins first baseman Justin Bour, center, celebrates in the dugout after hitting a solo home run in the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Atlanta Braves, Friday, June 16, 2017, in Atlanta. That loaded the bases with no outs, but Urena pitched out of the jam without allowing a run.

After scoring 29 runs in winning two of three at Washington this week, the Braves were punchless at the plate. The veteran second baseman has a surprising.306/.351/.431 batting line in 61 games this season for Atlanta and will probably be a popular name ahead of the July 31 trade deadline.
