Miami Marlins fall behind early, rally falls short in loss to Atlanta Braves

It took all of six pitches before the Atlanta Braves made their move against Miami Marlins starting pitcher Trevor Rogers on Friday.

Ronald Acuna Jr.’s line drive scorched off his bat into left field for a leadoff double was just a sign of things to come.

The Braves teed off against Rogers, hitting three home runs and pegging the lefty for five runs on eight hits and two walks over just four innings as Miami ultimately fell 5-3 at loanDepot park to begin a three-game series against the defending World Series champions.
