ATLANTA -- Jarrod Saltalamacchia knows most teams dont get many chances to beat Atlanta Braves closer Craig Kimbrel. Eli Manning Jersey . Saltalamacchia drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning, Henderson Alvarez won for the first time in three starts and the Miami Marlins beat the Braves 3-2 on Thursday night. "He threw me a lot of sliders tonight, which is not what hes done in the past, but Id swung over a slider two nights ago and struck out," Saltalamacchia said. "I dont blame him. He made a mistake and I was able to do something with it." In taking three of four games, the Marlins won just their second series in the last 10 against the Braves at Turner Field. Alvarez (7-5) gave up six hits, two runs and one walk with four strikeouts in eight innings. The Marlins are 13-3 in his last 16 starts. Kimbrel (0-2), pitching in a non-save situation with the score tied 2-all to begin the ninth, struck out Garrett Jones and had Marcell Ozuna struck out, too, but the ball a wild pitch rolled a few feet from the plate after bouncing off catcher Evan Gattis shin guards and Ozuna reached safely. With Saltalamacchia batting, Ozuna advanced to second on another wild pitch and scored on the RBI single to centre, easily beating B.J. Uptons throw to the plate. Saltalamacchia went 3 for 4 with two doubles. "I think its my third time facing him," Saltalamacchia said. "Hes an All-Star closer. Hes got great stuff and really has a great idea of what hes doing out there. In that situation, Im just trying to not get too big, put a ball in play." Kimbrel, a four-time NL All-Star, allowed one hit and one run and struck out two. He blamed himself for the wild pitches. "Thats part of baseball," Kimbrel said. "Not everything goes perfect every time you go out there. Youve just got to find a way to get through it and unfortunately we didnt do it tonight." Atlanta dropped 1 1/2 games behind first-place Washington in the NL East. Miami, which is eight games out, moved into a tie with the New York Mets for third. Marlins closer Steve Cishek earned his 24th save in 27 chances, retiring Freddie Freeman, Justin Upton and Jason Heyward on fly balls in the ninth. Alvarez had struggled against the Braves, going 0-2 with a 6.86 ERA in four career starts, and he was coming off an outing that ended after 2 2-3 innings when San Franciscos Joe Panik hit a liner off his left shin. Chris Johnson hit his eighth homer, a two-run shot in the second that gave the Braves a 2-0 lead. "As far as today, that one fastball I just left out over the plate," Alvarez said through an interpreter. "He handled it, but as far as my struggles against the Braves, its just been coincidence." The Marlins tied it 2-all in the fifth on Adeiny Hechavarrias RBI single and Christian Yelichs forceout. Aaron Harang, who was attempting to win his fifth straight decision, gave up seven hits, two runs and two walks and struck out five in seven innings. Marlins manager Mike Redmond successfully challenged that Justin Upton was out to end the sixth. Upton, diving back to first base after Heyward lined out to shortstop, was originally called safe by first base umpire Rob Drake, but the call was overturned. Redmond has successfully challenged 15 of 19 calls this year. NOTES: Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez gave SS Andrelton Simmons the night off and started Ramiro Pena, who went 1 for 3, in his place. ... With a throwing miscue in Miamis 6-1 loss Wednesday to Atlanta, Saltalamacchia has 12 errors and is tied for most by a Marlins catcher in a season (Miguel Olivo 2007). ... When Freeman homered Wednesday, he snapped a stretch of 83 straight at-bats without a homer, the longest stint of his three-year career. .... Ozuna struck out eight times in the series. Kerry Wynn Jersey . - Mike Zimmer has brought a demanding style to the Minnesota Vikings. Jon Halapio Jersey . With the win, the Marlies complete a three-game series sweep of the Admirals and move on to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs. T.J. Brennan added an empty netter with less than 25 seconds remaining for his second of the playoffs. http://www.officialnewyorkgiantsfootball...sey-womens . Russia has spent about $51 billion to deliver the Sochi Olympics, which run Feb. 7-23, making them the most expensive games ever, even though as a winter event it hosts many fewer athletes than summer games do.Dusan Tadic has a new role under Southampton boss Claude Puel and has stepped up to become the clubs key creator. Ahead of Saints clash with Burnley on Super Sunday, we look at his impact for club and country... When Tadic tucked away Serbias winner over Austria last Sunday, the Southampton man preserved a remarkable streak.Previously exiled from international duty after Serbia failed to qualify for Euro 2016, he has returned in style under new boss Slavoljub Muslin, scoring or assisting each of his countrys last 10 goals. Its a stunning turnaround for the Saints winger, and is the main reason why Muslins side currently top World Cup qualifying Group D ahead of Wales. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. I almost burst into tears when the whole stadium started chanting my name at the end of the game, Tadic said after the 3-2 victory over the Austrians.It doesnt matter whos getting the assists and the goals, the important thing is that we are winning. Muslin has deployed the right strategy and were only going to get better. Dusan Tadic has played a role in Serbias last 10 goals The former Twente player has also stepped up at St Marys following the departures of Sadio Mane, Victor Wanyama and Graziano Pelle.It was another summer of transition on the south coast and some thought the talented Serb could leave too, but new boss Claude Puel sold his vision to Tadic, who signed a four-year contract extension in early August. In his first few weeks at the club, Puel made it clear he had big plans for the attacker, saying: I think Tadic is interesting in his position because he can turn and go quickly.He can give good passes for the striker. He wants to make progress all the time in the games step by step.Im sure that Dusan is going to make a very good season. Highlights of Southamptons 3-0 win over West Ham His fine finish againnst West Ham was his first goal of the season, and perhaps surprisingly, the man who twice set up three goals in one game last season is yet to provide an assist this term. Kareem Martin Jersey.  But stats can be deceiving.Dig a little deeper and you find Tadic has created 22 chances for team-mates in the league to date, behind only Willian (23) and Jason Puncheon (24), and no player has created more than the Serb from open play (20 chances created).Southampton initially struggled to adapt to Puels diamond formation, with Tadic in an unfamiliar central role, and did not record their first league win under mid-September against Swansea.This is a new system for everyone, Tadic said after defeat to Arsenal on September 10. I used to play normally in a 4-2-3-1 system and I can play in all three positions, left, right or number 10.For me, it doesnt matter which position I play, the most important is I play where the ball is, because I like to be on the ball. Charlie Austin and Dusan Tadic argued over who would take a penalty against Sparta Prague The appointment of Puel, a Premier League novice, and his subsequent poor start tempered expectations at a club becoming used to consistent improvement, and a spat between Tadic and Charlie Austin over a first-half penalty against Sparta Prague had the potential to be seized upon by those looking for signs of discontent.But Austin scored and Tadic impressed as the Saints ran out comfortable 3-0 winners, and its a result that has proved something of a turning point.Since then, Puels side are unbeaten, having kept six consecutive clean sheets, with Burnley next at home before a mouthwatering clash with Serie A giants Inter Milan in the San Siro next Thursday.Its reward for a fantastic campaign under previous boss Ronald Koeman, and while many of the stars of that team have departed, along with the manager, crucially Tadic remains. Dusan Tadic signed his new four-year contract with Southampton in August Now 27, he is committed to Southampton through the peak years of his career. Not that hes resting on his laurels.Im that kind of person who likes always to improve myself and I think I can play much, much better as well as my team, he said.You try to push yourself much more and I will try to improve further and cause more danger for opponents to make our fans happy.You want to show your best in every game and in training.
