ATLANTA -- One day after he was the game-winning hero as a pinch-hitter, Jose Fernan
ATLANTA -- One day after he was the game-winning hero as a pinch-hitter, Jose Fernandez was humbled by one of the worst starts of his career.Fernandez gave up two homers and a career-high nine runs and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 9-1 on Saturday.Freddie Freeman hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Jace Peterson hit a three-run homer in Atlantas seven-run sixth that knocked Fernandez out of the game.Six of Atlantas nine runs off Fernandez were earned, matching the right-handers career high. He allowed eight hits and a walk over 5 2/3 innings.The six earned runs allowed equaled the six he allowed in five starts in June, when he had a 1.67 ERA.Rough day, man, Fernandez said. I just have to put it behind me.Asked about allowing nine runs, Fernandez said, I know its not going to be the last time, Im sure.Fernandez (10-4) drove in the decisive runs as a pinch-hitter in Miamis 7-5 12-inning win over Atlanta on Friday night. Manager Don Mattingly thought about sending Fernandez home early during the extra-inning game -- a common practice in the majors for pitchers before scheduled starts -- but kept him around for his bat.The lopsided loss put a quick end to the feel-good victory from the night before.This game always finds a way to remind you how tough it is, Fernandez said.Mattingly said he thought Fernandez got a little bit winded in the Braves seven-run sixth.It wasnt typical Jose, but I thought he threw the ball good enough, Mattingly said.Lucas Harrell (1-0), recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett before the game, allowed only one run on three hits in six innings as he made his first start in the majors in two years.The Marlins, who began the day third in the NL wild-card standings, fell to 3-8 against the last-place Braves.The four-game series will conclude on Sunday at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in a salute-the-troops game at the military installation.Peterson doubled to left field in the first, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on Freemans 14th homer, a high shot caught by a fan on the front row of the center-field seats.Harrell, 31, made his first start since April 15, 2014 with Houston against Kansas City. He made his major league debut with the White Sox in 2010 -- when current Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski was behind the plate.Having Pierzynski added to Harrells sense of comfort.It has been a long road to get back here, Harrell said. I felt like Ive worked real hard. Ive been up and had a little success before. It was just nice because A.J. was with me in Chicago and he knew my stuff and we were on the same page all game.Braves rookie left-hander Dario Alvarez gave up singles to Chris Johnson and Jeff Mathis in the ninth before hitting Dietrich with a pitch to load the bases. Alvarez struck out pinch-hitter Giancarlo Stanton and Ichiro Suzuki to end the game.11 TO GOSuzukis triple to center field in the third inning drove in Derek Dietrich, who had a leadoff single, for Miamis only run. Suzuki has 2,989 hits in the majors -- 11 from reaching 3,000.LUCKY 13Petersons first-inning double gave him a career-best 13-game hitting streak. He is the only Braves player to have a streak as long as 10 games this season.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: 1B Justin Bour left the game in the sixth inning with a right ankle sprain. He was limping slightly after fielding Chase dArnauds grounder and barely beating dArnaud to the bag -- a call that stood following a review. He remained in the game for two batters before walking slowly off the field. Johnson took over at first base. Bour said his status is day to day.Braves: OF Ender Inciarte was held out with what he says is a minor right groin strain. He left Friday nights game in the sixth inning with the injury. He said Saturday he hopes to play on Sunday.UP NEXTMarlins: LHP Adam Conley (4-5, 3.90 ERA) will look for his second win of the season against the Braves on Sunday at Fort Bragg. He threw eight scoreless innings in a 3-0 win on June 22 in Miami.Braves: RHP Matt Wisler (3-7, 4.14) has a 7.11 ERA in two career games, including one start, against the Marlins.

Cheap Flames Jerseys .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Jose Aldo looked so sharp in his UFC 200 return against Frankie Edgar that one might assume he could read his opponents thoughts.Apparently that might not be too far from the truth.During a media day on Wednesday at his Nova Uniao gym in Rio de Janeiro, Aldo (26-2) told reporters that he had a spy planted in Edgars camp during the lead-up to their July 9 rematch in Las Vegas, which Aldo won by unanimous decision to claim the UFCs interim featherweight title.Aldo removed any doubt that he wasnt the same fighter after losing his 145-pound title in 13 seconds to Conor McGregor in December by the convincing nature in which he controlled Edgar. But he did so curiously by attempting very few kicks over the five-round bout.It was a strategy that Aldo says he admits was by design, in an effort to lessen Edgars wrestling advantage by avoiding takedowns.We had a few spies from the other side, people that were training close to him the entire week, and they always came and talked to us, Aldo said. So I had to stop kicking and [using] my left hand, because he would counter on that.Aldo, who defended his title by a close decision against Edgar during their first meeting in February 2013, had a much easier time in the rematch but shutting down Edgars offense with clean counter strikes.I have already fought him before, aand I have studied him, so what I tried to do was break him during the fight, Aldo told ESPN.ddddddddddddcom after the bout.While Aldo withheld the name of his spy, he admitted this wasnt the first time he employed a fellow Brazilian to secretly scout an opponents training routine and strategy during fight week.Thank God it always happens, man, Aldo said. We always have Brazilians in the other corners. When I go train in the first day, I also see the list of cornerman. And, if theres a Brazilian, we go after him and ask him to take a look, because that helps a lot.Edgars head coach, Mark Henry, responded to Aldos comments by telling that he wasnt concerned.I dont care, Henry said. I couldnt care less. I think we should have been able to adjust anyway.Aldo, 29, went unbeaten for a full decade before the first-round knockout loss to McGregor at UFC 194, and made sure to call out the Irish star following his defeat of Edgar. A unification rematch is expected later this year, regardless of whether McGregor is victorious in his Aug. 20 rematch at welterweight against Nick Diaz. My message to him is youre the next and I will regain my championship, Aldo told ' ' '
