The Marlins just prevented a series sweep following a 5-4 road triumph over the division-leader Atlanta Braves that ended a four-game losing streak including the first three installments of the series.


Center Fielder Jazz Chisolm Jr. landed a two-run single to cut the lead to 3-4 in the final frame while DH Garrett Cooper made a follow-through with a two-run double in lifting Miami to a one-run win.    


2B Luis Arraez topped all batters of the Marlins with a team-high batting average at .421, an on-base percentage at .482, and 32 hits while First Baseman Garrett Cooper chipped in 11 RBIs and Right Fielder Jorge Soler added a team-leading 5 homers this season.


The Miami Marlins’ management gave a nod to southpaw Jesus Luzardo (2-1, 3.62 ERA) to start the series opener on Friday night.


The left-handed starter has given away four runs in pitching for four-plus innings in a 4-7 road loss versus Cleveland. Miami was victorious in Luzardo’s first four starts this year.
