Braves complete sweep at Miami with 4-2 win

June 1, 2014 MIAMI (AP) -- Evan Gattis broke a ninth-inning tie with a two-run homer, and the Atlanta Braves completed a three-game sweep by beating the Miami Marlins 4-2 Sunday.

Shae Simmons, pitching in his second big league game, earned his first career save when he retired Christian Yelich with two on for the final out. Closer Craig Kimbrel was given the day off because of a heavy recent workload.

The Braves pulled off the sweep after losing four consecutive games to Boston. Miami, which began the series tied with Atlanta atop the NL East, fell three games back.

The Marlins have lost four home games in a row but are still 20-11 at Marlins Park.
