Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – May 16, 2012 – ESPN.

So, it turns out that the Braves can score four runs. Unfortunately, they needed nine. Mike Minor‘s struggles continue, as his ERA is now over seven.

The Braves took an early lead, with Tyler Pastornicky (leading off with Michael Bourn getting a day off) singling, going to third on a Martin Prado double, and scoring on a Freddie Freeman groundout. And Minor got off to a good start, allowing only a walk through three.

But then he allowed three runs in the fourth, and three more (including a steal of home) in the fifth. The Braves cut it to 6-4 in the sixth, Prado scoring on a Dan Uggla single and runs coming in on groundouts by Brian McCann and Matt Diaz. But Cristhian Martined allowed a two-run homer in the seventh to give the Marlins breathing room.
