Marlins, Koehler lose to Braves 3-2
MIAMI (AP) — Tom Koehler said he gave up too many walks, which forced him to throw too many pitches, which eventually led to too many runs.
Koehler took a shutout into the sixth inning but couldn’t hold a two-run lead, and the Miami Marlins lost Friday to the Atlanta Braves, 3-2.
“I’m frustrated with myself for letting that one slip away,” Koehler said. “It’s tough to win ballgames when you’re giving a team extra opportunities.”
Julio Teheran pitched 7 1-3 innings and scored the tying run in the seventh to help the Braves move a game ahead of Miami atop the NL East.
The Braves trailed 2-0 in the sixth but rallied to break a four-game losing streak. They won for only the third time in their past 13 road games.
