Preview: Braves (55-46) at Marlins (48-52)
BT Movements  ·  Line Movements
Game: 2
Venue: Marlins Park
Date: September 10, 2013 7:10 PM EDT
  

Strong pitching is a big reason why the Atlanta Braves tend to have little trouble with the Miami Marlins on the road.

Julio Teheran didn't have much in his latest meeting with the lowly NL East rival.

After outpitching phenom Jose Fernandez in his most recent outing, Teheran attempts to beat the Marlins again and help the Braves continue their dominance in Miami on Tuesday night.

Atlanta (86-57) has won 20 of its past 25 visits to Miami behind a 2.07 ERA. The staff has a 1.77 ERA, while going 13-3 at Marlins Park, which opened last year.

The Braves continued that dominant stretch by doing all of their scoring in the fourth inning of a 5-2 win to open this four-game set.

"Five hits and five runs on one frame," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "And we made it hold up."

Giving the ball to Teheran (11-7, 3.01 ERA) may keep them rolling.

The right-hander was superb in a 2-1 win over Miami (53-89) on Aug. 30, yielding one run with eight strikeouts in 6 1-3 innings in a pitchers' duel with Fernandez.

While Fernandez is considered a favorite for the NL Rookie of the Year Award, Teheran is making a case for his own consideration by leading Atlanta with a 2.23 ERA and 54 strikeouts in 48 1-3 innings over eight starts since the All-Star break.

In an effort to monitor Teheran's innings, Atlanta, which is closing in on the division crown, opted to skip his latest outing Wednesday, which ended in a 5-2 loss to the New York Mets. Teheran's 161 1-3 innings rank third on the team and fourth among rookies.

Freddie Freeman is hitting .348 with two homers, six doubles, nine RBIs and 12 runs in 13 games against the Marlins this season. He's doubled and tripled in three at_bats against Tom Koehler, Miami's scheduled starter.

Koehler (3-9, 4.70) is 0-3 with a 5.68 ERA over his last six starts. The rookie right-hander was putting together a strong start in last Tuesday's 6-2 win at Chicago, but was charged with two runs. The first came on a leadoff homer in the fifth before Koehler walked the bases loaded and was lifted with one out.

"You give up a leadoff home run, things like that are going to happen," Koehler told the team's official website. "But after that, you have to be able to shut them down. I don't know if it was a combination of trying to do a little too much and losing the zone, and with them being a little bit more patient, but it's just one of those innings that can't happen."

Koehler has no record and a 2.00 ERA over four meetings with the Braves, giving up three runs in five innings of an 11-3 road defeat in his only career start against them.

The Marlins may have Giancarlo Stanton back in the lineup after he missed two games with a sore right ankle, suffered in a 7-0 win at Atlanta on Sept. 1.

"Best case, (Tuesday) he's ready to go," manager Mike Redmond told the team's official website. "But it really is up to him. We're going day to day. When he says he is good to go and ready to play, he will play."

Stanton has a .136 average with one homer and three RBIs in 14 season meetings with Atlanta, and he's 0 for 7 with two strikeouts and three walks versus Teheran.
