Rivera Helps Marlins Break Out With 15 Hits, Beat Braves 5-4

ATLANTA (CBSMiami/AP) — The Miami Marlins welcomed back one of their up-and-coming young starting pitchers on Saturday.

Caleb Smith wasn’t satisfied with his first start in a month.

Thanks to a productive day by the National League’s worst offense, Smith’s return was good enough to beat the first-place Braves.

Yadiel Rivera hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the fifth inning and the Miami Marlins beat Atlanta 5-4 for only their second win over the Braves this season.

Smith (4-4) returned from missing 26 games with a hip injury to give up four runs, three earned, in six innings.
