The Atlanta Braves crushed the Miami Marlins 29-9 on Wednesday evening in the finale of a three-game set at Truist Park. It allowed the Braves to make history by setting a National League record for runs in a game in the modern era dating back to 1900 (and avoid being swept by the Marlins).
Adam Duvall contributed nine runs on three homers to include a grand slam in the bottom of the seventh inning. It marked his second three-homer game in a week.
Freddie Freeman chipped in six RBIs, including a two-run homer in the third on which he notched the 1,500th hit of his career. The Braves tallied a total of seven home runs; Travis d’Arnaud, Ozzie Albies (in his grand return from the injured list), and Ronald Acuna, Jr. also went deep.
