MIAMI (AP) — Freddie Freeman and Adam Duvall homered in a seven-run fourth inning, and the surging Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 12-2 on Monday night.
Freeman also singled twice while Ozzie Albies had three hits and three RBIs for the NL East-leading Braves, who have won four straight and 11 of 13.
Trailing 2-1, Atlanta broke it open against Miami starter Braxton Garrett (1-2) and reliever Paul Campbell in the fourth. Freeman’s three-run blast off Campbell made it 5-2. Austin Riley doubled and scored on Dansby Swanson’s RBI single.
Duvall, who rejoined Atlanta in a trade from Miami on July 30, then drove Campbell’s curveball into the left-field seats. The two-run shot was his 27th homer of the season.
Touki Toussaint (2-2) limited the Marlins to two runs and three hits in 6 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked two. Edgar Santana and Jacob Webb completed the four-hitter.
Albies had a two-run single in the sixth and Travis d’Arnaud drove in two more with a double in the seventh.
Jazz Chisholm Jr. homered in the first and Isan Díaz went deep in the second for the Marlins, whose four-game winning streak ended.
Garrett walked six batters, including the first three of the game, in three-plus innings. The left-hander allowed three runs on three hits and struck out two, failing to complete four innings in his second consecutive start.
The Marlins reinstated Jesus Sánchez from the 10-day injured list and designated Deven Marrero for assignment. Sánchez started in right field and went 0-for-3.
Marlins: RHP Pablo López (right rotator cuff strain) threw batting practice Monday. López has been sidelined since July 14.
Braves RHP Huascar Ynoa (4-2, 3.02 ERA) will make his first start in three months as the series continues on Tuesday. Ynoa broke his pitching hand when he punched a dugout bench in frustration after being removed from an outing against Milwaukee on May 16. RHP Sandy Alcantara (7-10, 3.52) starts for the Marlins.
