ATLANTA — Pinch-hitter Evan Gattis broke an eighth-inning tie with a two-run double off A.J. Ramos, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 3-1 Wednesday for their ninth win in 12 games. Aaron Harang allowed one run and six hits in six innings with 11 strikeouts and one walk, raising his ERA from 0.70 to 0.85. Pulled from his previous start against the New York Mets after six hitless innings and 101 pitches, he stretched his streak of hitless innings to eight before Adeiny Hechavarria singled leading off the third.
