With lefty Mike Minor starting for the Braves, slump-ridden Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez was back in the lineup Wednesday night. He sat out the series finale with the Pirates in Miami on Tuesday, as Greg Dobbs got a start at first base.
Left-handed reliever Dan Jennings struck out three in two scoreless innings as he continued his dominating work for Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday. He has a 1.02 ERA in 13 games, striking out 17 and walking four over 17 1/3 innings.
Chris Coghlan is 9-for-24 during a six-game hitting streak for New Orleans, raising his average to .246 in 14 games. The 2009 National League Rookie of the Year batted .118 in 19 games with the Marlins early this season.
