MIAMI (AP) – Adonis Garcia hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning, and the Braves beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 Friday night for their season-high seventh straight win
Freddie Freeman extended his hitting streak to 27 games with a sixth-inning double. Atlanta’s winning streak is its longest since it won nine in a row from June 27-July 5, 2014.
Miami lost for the fifth time in eight games. The Marlins began the night five games back for the NL’s second wild card.
With the score 2-2, Emilio Bonifacio singled with one out off A.J. Ramos, stole his first base this season, took third on catcher J.T. Realmuto’s throwing error and came home on Garcia’s single to center.
