s they did in 2011 and 12 -- averaging nearly 375 yards with their trademark triple-option offensive syst

ATLANTA -- Interim Braves manager Brian Snitker had to sweat out the ninth inning more than he wanted to. Davis Webb Jersey .Even so, he was pleased to see Mauricio Cabrera, the seventh Atlanta pitcher, earn his first career save.It was too eventful for me there at the end, Snitker said, but we won the game.Pinch-hitter Brandon Snyder had two RBI in a four-run sixth inning and the Braves rallied for an 8-5 victory over the Miami Marlins on Thursday night.Miami, which began the day a half-game ahead of two teams in the NL wild-card race, has allowed 25 runs and scored just 13 runs off 37 hits in losing its last three games. The Marlins dropped to 2-7 against Atlanta this year.The Braves improved to just 12-32 at Turner Field. They have the NLs worst overall record, the majors worst home record and the least productive offense in the big leagues, but they took a 6-3 lead in the sixth.Jeff Francoeurs double chased Marlins starter Wei-Yin Chen, and Mike Dunn gave up Erick Aybars RBI infield single, Snyders two-run go-ahead triple and Chase dArnauds RBI single.Chen (4-3) allowed eight hits, four runs, two walks and struck out two in 5 1/3 innings. The left-hander has a 7.27 ERA over his last five starts.Tyler Flowers RBI double in the seventh pushed the lead to 7-3. Ichiro Suzukis pinch-hit sacrifice fly in the eighth made it 7-4, and dArnauds RBI double in the eighth put Atlanta up 8-4.After Arodys Vizcaino issued a pair of two-out walks in the ninth, Flowers was ejected by home plate umpire Larry Vanover for arguing balls and strikes and was replaced by A.J. Pierzynski.Adeiny Hechavarrias RBI single chased Vizcaino -- the Atlanta closer pitching in a non-save situation -- and Cabrera retired pinch-hitter Cole Gillespie on a flyout for his first career save.What I saw it wasnt a very good zone all night, Flowers said. Finally the situation gets tight there at the end and I thought it was a blatant strike. So it comes a point where you have to do something. Its better me than a pitcher getting ejected.Dario Alvarez (2-1) earned the win after walking one, striking out one and throwing a wild pitch in two-thirds of the sixth.The Marlins went ahead 3-0 in the second on Justin Bours 15th homer, a three-run shot off Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz.Hes been swinging the bat good, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. Thats the issue for us. Weve been able to put up a lot of hits. We just havent been able to put up a lot of runs. Hes a guy that can do that.Following a 1-hour, 8-minute rain delay in the third, the Braves cut the lead to 3-2 on Freddie Freemans RBI triple and Nick Markakis RBI single.Tyrell Jenkins, the second Atlanta pitcher, walked the bases loaded but struck out J.T. Realmuto to keep the Marlins scoreless in the fifth.Foltynewicz, in his first start since May 30 after going on the disabled list with right elbow soreness, gave up two hits, two walks, three runs -- two earned -- and struck out two in three innings.RODNEY ON THE WAYMattingly will wait until Friday to announce how he will use newly acquired closer Fernando Rodney.Making a push to stay near the top of the NL wild-card race, the Marlins traded a minor league pitcher to get Rodney from San Diego.Current Marlins closer A.J. Ramos has converted straight 33 saves opportunities since last season, but Mattingly wouldnt say for sure who will have the role.Rodney, whose 253 career saves are fifth-most among active pitchers, is expected to join the team Friday.PAIRING TOP PROSPECTSBraves 2B Ozzie Albies has been demoted to Double-A Mississippi from Triple-A Gwinnett, where he will play alongside SS Dansby Swanson.General manager John Coppolella gave no timetable for their arrival in Atlanta, but this year hasnt been ruled out. The team also might wait until it moves into a new suburban ballpark next year.Swanson is Atlantas top prospect and was baseballs No. 1 overall draft pick last year. Albies ranks among the 25 top overall prospects. Both began their professional career as shortstops. Albies made the switch to second base this year at Gwinnett.Albies batted .248 in 56 games at Triple-A after hitting .369 in 22 games at Double-A to open the season.TRADE AND SIGNAtlanta dealt RHP Bud Norris, its No. 2 starter, to the Los Angeles Dodgers for two prospects. The Braves also signed veteran utility man Omar Infante to a minor league contract. Infante, 34, will be assigned to Class A Danville next week.UP NEXTMarlins: LHP Justin Nicolino (2-4, 5.17) will be called up from Triple-A New Orleans to start Friday night. He was demoted after allowing five runs over 4 2/3 innings June 15 against San Diego.Braves: RHP Julio Teheran (3-7) has a 2.46 ERA, seventh-best in the NL. He is 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA in 13 career starts against the Marlins. Mark Bavaro Jersey . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. Geno Smith Jersey . Clarke was injured while practicing on the Doha Golf Club range after the pro-am on Tuesday. The Northern Irishman arrived at the course on Wednesday hoping to start, but after hitting a few balls on the practice putting green Clarke advised officials he was not fit to play. . Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost . DURHAM, N.C. -- If Duke cant keep its grip on the ball, the Blue Devils might lose control of their season, too.A suddenly turnover-prone Duke team plays host to an improved Army on Saturday. The Blue Devils (2-3) rank last in the Atlantic Coast Conference and 123rd nationally in turnover margin, with 17 giveaways to 10 takeaways. The Black Knights (3-1) are fifth in the Bowl Subdivision in that stat category and had no turnovers in their first three games. Only two teams have turned it over less often.Army is a complete football team, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said.And with Hurricane Matthew churning up the East Coast, and threatening to dump rain on Wallace Wade Stadium, ball security will be at even more of a premium.If its windy and rainy, weve both got to kick the ball and throw the ball, Army coach Jeff Monken said. The ball will exchange hands and weve got to take care of it. Im sure theyre going to emphasize the same thing.Thats a certainty -- especially after how the Blue Devils last game went.Duke had six turnovers in a 34-20 loss to Virginia , including a fumble that was recovered for the game-sealing touchdown and five interceptions -- with four of them coming in a 20-minute stretch of the first half. The Blue Devils havent had fewer than three turnovers in any home game.Theyll have to overcome those self-inflicted wounds if theyre going to turn the season around and reach their fifth straight bowl game.Yet Cutcliffe insists the team has not -- and will not -- fracture.They know who the program is. They know what the programs about. That will never falter, Cutcliffe said. Thats not going to change. Weve said it for yyears that you dont ever run from it, you run to it -- meaning challenges, problems, issues. Olivier Vernon Jersey. ... Wherever you stumble, thats where your hidden treasure is buried. You just look for it.---Some things to know about the Army-Duke game:ARMYS GROUND GAME: The Black Knights once again lead the nation in rushing -- as they did in 2011 and 12 -- averaging nearly 375 yards with their trademark triple-option offensive system. Their three starters in the backfield are sophomores and RB Andy Davidson leads the way with a 103-yard average and six touchdowns. Running the ball is one thing, Monken said, but the bottom line is you have to score points.GOOD KNIGHT ON D: Not to be outdone, Armys defense ranks 10th nationally, allowing 264 yards, and is ninth against the run, giving up 87.5 yards per game. Everybody wants to talk about their offense, but their defense causes you a lot of problems with their configuration, Cutcliffe said.DUKES PRESSURE: The Blue Devils join a pair of top 10 teams -- No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Houston -- with at least three sacks in every game this season. That streak might be in jeopardy this week because the run-first Black Knights have only thrown 29 passes all year.FINISH STRONG: Army was unscored upon in the fourth quarters of its first three games, before blowing a 20-6 lead in the fourth quarter against Buffalo two weeks ago. The Blue Devils have been outscored 27-23 in their fourth quarters.---AP Sports Writer John Kekis in West Point, New York, contributed to this report.
