Braves Vs. Marlins Final Score: Kris Medlen Amazes Again In 3-0 Shutout Victory

There really isn't much more that can be said about Kris Medlen anymore. The kid worked eight scoreless innings on Wednesday night as the Braves and Marlins wrapped up a three-game series, which led to a 3-0 win for Atlanta. Medlen scattered four hits and just one walk, striking out six. His ERA this season is down to 1.51, and the Braves have now won his last 21 starts.

Atlanta used small ball against Josh Johnson to score their runs. Michael Bourn doubled to leadoff the game, and he moved into third on a sacrifice bunt from Martin Prado. Jason Heyward then hit a sacrifice fly to plate the first run of the game. Jose Constanza came up with a two-out single in the second inning to plate Dan Uggla. Freddie Freeman drove in Prado in the third with a sacrifice fly to left.

With a comfortable 3-0 lead, Medlen went into cruise control. He gave up just two hits after the first two innings, and no runner reached scoring position. Craig Kimbrel entered the ninth inning and recorded his 38th save of the season.

Atlanta's magic number to clinch a playoff birth is now six.

The Braves will now have an off-day on Thursday before heading to Philadelphia for a key three-game series with the Phillies.
