How It Happened
Left fielder Adam Duvall sent seven runs across home plate against his former Braves teammates. Duvall accumulated four hits versus Atlanta, two of which he homered into the Truist Park stands.
Third baseman Brian Anderson rocketed a homerun at the top of the second inning that began the Marlins’ offensive mayhem.
Although the score was back and forth until the sixth inning, base hits began to pile up and Miami started to pull away as the team drove in runs left and right.
