MIAMI— The Braves will be happy to leave South Florida. After being outscored 18-3 in the first two games of their series against the Miami Marlins, the Braves lost Thursday night on a couple of ground balls that found holes in the infield. Giancarlo Stanton and Casey McGehee hit consecutive run-scoring singles off David Carpenter during a two-run rally in the seventh inning that led the Marlins over the Atlanta Braves 5-4 for a three-game sweep of the NL East leader.
