ATLANTA —Wade LeBlanc needed two more outs to have a chance to win his first
start of the season. Peyton Manning Jersey . Ozzie Guillen had his
focus on LeBlancs pitch count and the chance to protect a lead against Atlanta.
Miami broke out for three runs in the first inning against Ben Sheets after
scoring just three total in two losses to Atlanta, and the Marlins ended the
Braves seven-game winning streak with a 4-2 victory Wednesday night. Carlos Lee,
Greg Dobbs and Bryan Petersen had consecutive run-scoring singles in Miamis
first inning. LeBlanc gave up only five hits and one run in 4 1-3 innings. He
was pulled by Guillen after giving up a single by Paul Janish and Sheets
sacrifice bunt in the fifth. Asked if LeBlanc being so close to qualifying for a
win was a factor, the typically candid Guillen replied “If the kid was in the
running for Cy Young, yes, but hes not.” LeBlanc threw 71 pitches and Guillen
didnt want him to throw more than 75. “He came out and I said Ive got four more
left,” LeBlanc said. The early hook came after Guillen said of LeBlanc before
the game “Im just begging for him to give me five innings. Thats not too hard to
do. ... We need more than four or five innings from our starting pitchers from
now on.” After the game, Guillen said he was happy with LeBlanc making it to 71
pitches. “Obviously, he wanted the win but weve got to take care of business,”
Guillen said. “Id rather win the game and stay healthy than win the game and get
(LeBlanc) hurt.” Carlos Zambrano (6-9) gave up one run in 1 2-3 innings in
relief of LeBlanc. Steve Cishek pitched the ninth for his fifth save. Cishek
walked pinch-hitter Michael Bourn to open the ninth. He recovered to strike out
pinch-hitter Brian McCann before ending the game when Martin Prado hit into a
double play. “We were not very good with runners on base,” said Braves manager
Fredi Gonzalez. “Even though we hit the ball hard, we hit it right at them.”
Zambrano earned the win in his second appearance since being removed from the
rotation. It was only his second career win in relief. Sheets (3-1) gave up 11
hits and four runs, three earned, in 6 2-3 innings in his first loss in four
starts with Atlanta. “It stinks when youre riding a long winning streak,” Sheets
said. “In the first inning, I gave them the momentum right out of the gate. The
momentum that we earned over seven games. “I just couldnt get out of the
inning.” The Braves win streak matched their season best. Freddie Freeman had
three hits and Reed Johnson had two hits in his first start with the Braves. The
Braves only run off LeBlanc came when Freeman, who reached on a single, scored
on a double by Janish with two outs in the second inning. Bryan Petersen
appeared to hurt his right shoulder as he made a diving attempt to catch the
bloop double by Janish. Petersen remained in the game and had an ice pack on the
shoulder after the game. Emilio Bonifacio started the game with a bunt single on
Sheets first pitch. Bonifacio stole second, moved to third on Donnie Murphys
single and scored on Lees bloop single to right field. Dobbs and Petersen also
had run-scoring singles for the 3-0 lead. The Marlins pushed their lead to 4-1
in the fourth when Scott Cousins, who reached on an infield single with two
outs, scored when left fielder Martin Prado misplayed LeBlancs double for an
error. Dan Ugglas double off Zambrano drove in Chipper Jones, who walked, to cut
Miamis lead to 4-2 in the sixth. Mike Dunn gave up back-to-back walks to load
the bases with two outs in the seventh before ending the inning on Freemans line
drive to right field. Janish delivered the defensive highlight in the third
inning. Sprinting from his shortstop position, Janish ended up on his stomach
after making a diving catch at the left-field foul line of a flyball hit by
Jose Reyes. Reyes stood staring from second base as Janish returned to his feet.
There was a brief delay when Lees bat hit home-plate umpire Joe West on Lees
follow-through on his swing in the fifth. The impact knocked Wests mask off and
left a cut on his face. NOTES: Reyes has a 19-game hitting streak, the longest
active streak in the majors. He was picked off by Sheets after his fifth-inning
single. ... Guillen said he will start Gorkys Hernandez, acquired from the
Pirates on Tuesday, in centerfield on Thursday night. Hernandez was a defensive
replacement in left field in the seventh. ... Guillen said he hasnt decided who
will join RHP Josh Johnson as the starters in Fridays doubleheader at
Washington. ... The Braves placed RHP Jair Jurrjens on the 15-day disabled list
with a strained right groin, clearing a roster spot for Paul Maholm, who was
acquired with Johnson from the Cubs on Monday night. ... Braves LHP Mike Minor
will face Marlins RHP Nate Eovaldi as the teams conclude their four-game series
on Thursday night. Demaryius Thomas Jersey . The 36-year-old
former Bologna star was called back to attend a hearing into allegations of
match-fixing in Italian soccer and is due back on Friday to begin preparations
for his Major League Soccer debut. Eric Decker Jersey . “I hope well continue on
that path,” Selig said of the positive talks Monday night before Game 2 of the
NL championship series. MLBs agreement with the players union expires on Dec.

Portugal – Richard Weinberger of Victoria overcame a rough start to win the
silver medal on Sunday in the mens 10 kilometre race at the FINA Olympic
Marathon Swimming Qualifier on Saturday. With the result, he earns a first
career Olympic team nomination. Oussama Mellouli of Tunisia won the gold medal
in one hour and 45 minutes and 18.5 seconds. Weinberger, 22, followed in
1:45:30.2 and Petar Stoychev of Bulgaria was third in 1:45:34.1 Within the first
200 metres, Weinberger ripped off a bothersome cap and accidently, at the same
time, lost his goggles. He was forced to stop and put on his goggles back on
which put him in last place early in the race. Weinbergers split times clearly
indicate the incredible comeback he made. He was in order 49th, 23rd, 15th,
eighth and fifth at the splits in the six—lap race. Willis McGahee Jersey. “There are a lot of
ups and downs in marathon swimming so we train for that,” said Weinberger. “I
knew I would just have to chip away and rely a lot on my training. My race plan
didnt really work out but I knew what I had to do to catch the field.”
Weinberger has made a name for himself in the past year winning key marathon
events. He won the Olympic test event last summer at Hyde Park, and went on to
winning the Pan American Games. During the World Cup season, Weinberger
collected a silver in Argentina, and bronze in Brazil. “To know Im going to the
Olympics is just unexplainable,” said Weinberger. “I don,t think it has sunk in
just yet.” Xavier Desharnais of Sherbrooke, Que., was 20th. “It was a very
difficult race,” he said. “The dynamics were much different. Im disappointed
with the result but it was a valuable experience.” The top-nine finishers –with
a limit of one per country – earned an Olympic nomination. Canada has two
marathon swimmign nominees for the Olympics. On Saturday, Zsofia Balazs of
Toronto earned her spot with a sixth place finish in the womens 10 kilometre.
Canada had no entries in 2008. “This was a very successful four years for us in
marathon swimming,” said Swimming Canadas CEO and national coach Pierre
Lafontaine. “We worked very hard to improve the program and the athletes are
gaining confidence.”he race.  ’ ’ ’
