Ryan GaydosSenior Analyst IJune 14, 2016

The Florida Marlins kept the NL East division race close with a 4-0 win over the Atlanta Braves. Florida Marlins' pitcher Rick VandenHurk pitched a great game going five innings and not giving up a single hit. He struck out seven as well before Manager Fredi Gonzalez decided to pull him. Joe Nelson relieved him but gave up one hit to who else but Chipper Jones.

The Marlins run support came from a Mike Jacobs three-run home run in the fourth off of Braves' pitcher Charlie Morton. The Braves had no support at all. The batters went 1 for 28 with 10 strikeouts and left 15 men on base.
