Mar­lins, Koehler lose to Braves 3-2

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

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.
