Marlins 4, Braves 3

April 25, 2007

MIAMI (AP) -- Miguel Olivo scored on a passed ball to cap a four-run rally as the Florida Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves 4-to-3 Wednesday night.

Tim Hudson had a career-high 12 strikeouts and took a six-hit shutout into the ninth. But Miguel Cabrera, Cody Ross and Aaron Boone singled to load the bases starting the inning. Bob Wickman (1-1) came on, and Olivo hit his first pitch for a two-run double.

Joe Borchard was intentionally walked to reload the bases.

Wickman struck out Josh Willingham, but with third baseman Chipper Jones playing in, Alfredo Amezaga flared an RBI single over him to tie the game.

On a 1-1 pitch to Dan Uggla, catcher Brian McCann let a low pitch from Wickman get past, and Olivo scored without a play.

The unearned run was the first run off Wickman this season, and the blown save was his first in seven chances.

Hudson came in a major league-best 0.62 ERA and dominated until the ninth. His ERA rose to 1.22.

The Marlins' Scott Olsen pitched eight innings and struck out 10, but he gave up homers to three of the Braves' first seven batters -- Kelly Johnson, Chipper Jones and Matt Diaz.
