Marlins Vs. Braves: Game Enters Rain Delay With Atlanta Leading 4-1

The game between the Braves and the Marlins has entered a rain delay in the sixth inning with Atlanta leading 4-1. Tough looking skies have been visible over Turner Field for the last several innings and they finally opened up just as the fifth inning was ending.

The timing really couldn't have been much better for Atlanta. Kris Medlen turned in a splendid outing allowing four hits and one run over five innings of work. Medlen needed just 57 pitches to get through his five innings.

The only blemish on Medlen's night came off the bat of Donnie Murphy who connected on a first-inning home run. The Braves wasted little time answering back with three runs in the bottom half of the first inning off of Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco.

Brian McCann tied the game with an RBI groundout and Juan Francisco followed later with a two run single that scored both Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman. Brian McCann extended the lead to 4-1 in the third with his 18th home run of the season.
