Conley pitches 8 innings to help Marlins beat Braves 3-0

MIAMI (AP) — Adam Conley pitched a career-high eight innings and the Miami Marlins broke the Atlanta Braves’ six-game winning streak Wednesday with a 3-0 victory.

The Marlins defeated the last-place Braves for only the second time in eight meetings this year, and for the first time in five games in Miami. Justin Bour hit a two-run homer, his 12th.

Conley (4-4) became the first Marlins starter to pitch eight innings this year. He allowed four hits and one walk and threw 114 pitches to earn his first victory since May 16.

The left-hander gave up only one hit in his previous start, but wasn’t involved in the decision.

Conley was helped by two fine plays by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, and by A.J. Ramos, who gave up a pair of two-out singles in the ninth but earned his 32nd consecutive save, including 23 this year.
