Marlins Vs. Braves: Miami Falls In Rubber Match, 7-1

Life without Hanley Ramirez began for the Miami Marlins on Wednesday afternoon, but it didn't go as hoped. The Marlins collected a mere three hits in a 7-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves in the series finale at Marlins Park in front of a record crowd of 36,711, placing them eight games under .500.

Miami did get on the scoreboard first following a double from Justin Ruggiano that drove in Donovan Solano in the bottom of the third inning. But over the next three innings, it surrendered six runs -- all of them coming off starter Ricky Nolasco who eventually left in the middle of the sixth. Nolasco (8-9) would officially last five and one-third innings, allowing eight hits and six earned runs. He gave up two home runs.

The Marlins have dropped seven of their last 10 games.
