Braves’ 14-game win streak ends with loss to MarlinsATLANTA - Evan Gattis blames himself for not getting his catcher’s mitt lower and keeping Adeiny Hechavarria from scoring on a wild pitch.
Had he done so, the Atlanta Braves might still have a long winning streak, but Gattis says the team’s goal now is to win the three-game series.
The Braves’ 14-game winning streak ended Saturday night with a 1-0 loss to the last-place Miami Marlins, who scored on reliever Jordan Walden’s wild pitch in the ninth inning.
Miami stopped its own six-game skid.
The Braves fell one victory shy of tying the 2000 team for the franchise’s longest winning streak since the 1891 Boston Beaneaters won 18 straight.
Marlins starter Nate Eovaldi allowed one hit in seven innings. Mike Dunn (3-3) got the win and Steve Cishek earned his 24th save, striking out Paul Janish with a runner on first to end it.
Both teams finished with just three hits.
