MIAMI (AP) – Adonis Garcia drove in three runs in the final three innings and the Atlanta Braves rallied for their first victory of the year after nine consecutive losses, beating Miami 6-3 on Friday night.
The Braves managed just one hit in the first six innings, trailed 3-0 in the seventh and appeared on the verge of falling to 0-10, which would have matched the worst start in franchise history in 1988.
Their comeback began with three consecutive hits in the seventh, including a double by Garcia to drive in the first Atlanta run. Nick Markakis’ RBI single in the eighth made it 3-all, and Garcia’s two-run double put the Braves ahead.
