Huascar Ynoa looked sharp in his return and the Braves offense did just enough to extend their winning streak to five straight games with a 2-0 win over the Miami Marlins. Jorge Soler plated the first run with a single off Sandy Alcantara in the eighth and then Austin Riley gave them some insurance with a solo home run in the ninth.

Ynoa was sharp allowing just three hits over 5 13 scoreless innings in his first start since the middle of May. The bullpen combined to allow one hit over 3 23 scoreless frames to lock down the win.

Thanks to a Phillies loss in Arizona, the Braves now hold a 2.5 game lead in the NL East. They have won five straight series and are a perfect 5-0 on their current nine-game road trip.
