Ozuna homers, Marlins beat Braves 7-5 after benches empty

ATLANTA (AP) — Marcell Ozuna hit a three-run homer and the Miami Marlins rallied to beat Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves 7-5 in a testy game Wednesday night.

The benches for both teams emptied in the seventh inning after Atlanta reliever Jose Ramirez threw inside to Miami ace Jose Fernandez, who had been knocked to the ground by a pitch from Teheran in the fifth.

No punches were thrown and Ramirez was ejected.

Tensions began to rise in the sixth. Fernandez hit Nick Markakis on the hip with a fastball after Teheran plunked Martin Prado in the top of the inning. There was no apparent warning issued by plate umpire Marvin Hudson before he tossed Ramirez.

The comeback from a 4-1 deficit helped Fernandez (15-8) stop a five-game road losing streak, the longest of his career.
