The Atlanta Braves homered three times, but the bullpen surrendered six runs to send them to a 9-7 loss to the Miami Marlins. The game began with a pair of leadoff home runs on the first pitch as Jazz Chisholm and Ozzie Albies both went deep on the first pitch they saw. The lead see sawed back and forth before a three-run seventh pushed Miami ahead for good.
Albies, Austin Riley and Alex Dickerson all homered in the loss. Dickerson snapped Atlanta’s streak of consecutive solo home runs with a two-run shot in the fourth.
Bryce Elder will get the call for the Braves on Sunday while the Marlins will go with young left-hander Jesus Luzardo.
