Braves looking to extend mastery of Marlins

Atlanta opened its current homestand against two of the National League's hottest teams. Beginning Tuesday, the Braves finish it with three games against the last-place Miami Marlins, a team they've dominated all season.

The opening game features Atlanta left-hander Dallas Keuchel (3-5, 4.39 ERA) against Miami right-hander Elieser Hernandez (2-5, 5.40). It is the final series of the season between the NL East rivals.

The Braves -- 4-2 on the homestand against the New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers -- are 12-4 against the Marlins this season. That success has contributed greatly to Atlanta's current position as the division leader. Miami was swept over the weekend by the Colorado Rockies and has won only three of its past 10 games.
