MIAMI (AP) - Rookie Mallex Smith hit an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning and the resurgent Atlanta Braves completed a three-game sweep by beating Miami 6-5 Sunday.
The Braves blew a 5-0 lead, and Ichiro Suzuki's RBI single on an 0-2 pitch with two outs in the ninth tied the game for the Marlins. But Atlanta rallied in the 10th against Edwin Jackson (0-1), Miami's sixth pitcher.
The Braves arrived in Miami with an 0-9 record, their worst start since 1988, and staged a turnaround in a ballpark where they dominate. They're 28-12 at Marlins Park since it opened in 2012.
Miami, meanwhile, is 0-5 at home this year under new manager Don Mattingly going into a four-game series starting Monday against NL East leader Washington.
