ATLANTA -- Jacob Turner is sticking in Miamis rotation for at least one more start. Garrett Grayson Falcons Jersey . Turner allowed two runs in his first start in six weeks and the Marlins knocked Mike Minor out of the game early in their 6-5 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Turner (3-6) made his return to the rotation after eight relief appearances and performed just as manager Mike Redmond hoped. Turner gave up four hits in five innings. "That was great," Redmond said. "We talked before the game about him stepping up and getting another opportunity to go into the rotation and he did exactly that." A key for Turner was the first inning, when he loaded the bases but allowed only one run. He ended the inning when Evan Gattis hit into a double play. "Being able to get out of that with just one run was huge," Turner said. The Braves only other run off Turner came on Justin Uptons third-inning homer. Donovan Solano had a career-high four hits and also reached on a walk as Miami took its second straight win over Atlanta to open the four-game series. Christian Yelich had two hits and scored three runs. Steve Cishek pitched around Chris Johnsons leadoff single in the ninth to earn his 23rd save. Pinch-runner Jordan Schafer was caught stealing before Cishek struck out Andrelton Simmons and pinch-hitter Ryan Doumit. Minor (3-6) was rocked in his shortest start of the season, giving up six runs on 10 hits and two walks in three-plus innings. Minor said he felt strong but "way rustier tonight." "And thats not an excuse, either," Minor said. "I felt good." Minor said he threw "pretty good" in the bullpen before the game. "Then I got out there and I just wasnt throwing to the corners," he said. "It was one of those games I felt like I was trying to aim the ball a little bit." Miami led 6-2 before its bullpen gave up three runs in the eighth, including Jason Heywards two-run single. Heyward drove in three runs with two hits. The Braves began the night one game behind first-place Washington in the NL East. Turner made his first start since a loss at Texas on June 11. He struck out the side in the fourth as he earned his first win since June 5. "He gave us five innings," Redmond said. "We didnt want to push him too much considering hes been in the bullpen for a while." The Braves enjoyed a promising start off Turner. B.J. Upton led off the first with a double before Turner loaded the bases with two one-out walks. Heywards single to centre drove in Upton before Gattis hit into a double play to end the inning. Like Turner, Minor allowed only one run in the first inning after the Marlins loaded the bases with no outs. He gave up three runs in the third and was pulled after giving up three straight hits to open the fourth. The left-hander has allowed 10 or more hits seven times in five seasons, including five times this year. Giancarlo Stanton had a run-scoring double and Jeff Baker drove in a run with a single in the Marlins three-run third. Turner opened the fourth with a double off Minor and scored on Yelichs single. After Solanos double left runners on second and third, David Hale replaced Minor and gave up Marcel Ozunas run-scoring groundout for a 6-2 lead. Minors ERA rose to 5.32 as he allowed six runs for the second straight start. Following Uptons 18th homer with two outs in the third, the Braves didnt have another hit until Tommy La Stellas eight-inning single off Mike Dunn drove in Tyler Pastornicky, who walked as a pinch-hitter. Bryan Morris replaced Dunn and gave up Heywards two-run single, trimming Miamis lead to 6-5. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman leaned over the rolled-up tarp to reach into the stands and catch Bakers foul popup in the ninth. NOTES: The Marlins lead the season series 6-5. ...

"The sting from yesterday is not something we hid from or pretend didnt happen," Dineen said.CLEVELAND - Things are back to where they once were between Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and LeBron James.In fact, theyre friendly enough to crack jokes about each other.I just saw LeBron, Gilbert said Wednesday in his first news conference since February. He looked at me and said, Looks like you grew an inch. I said I could use it.My how far theyve come.On the eve of Clevelands season opener — James official return to the Cavs — both Gilbert and the superstar addressed their relationship, which became fractured four years ago. When James announced he was leaving for Miami in 2010, Gilbert publicly degraded him in a scathing letter to Cavs fans.Gilbert called James cowardly and disloyal and predicted the Cavs would win an NBA championship before the self-declared former king. It was thought their relationship couldnt be fixed, but Gilbert said that was never the case and the two met in Miami in July to work through their differences.That paved the way for James to re-sign with the Cavs.Gilbert said time has healed things and he and James are united.Obviously there are a lot of fireworks at that time and a lot of emotions flying all over the place, he said. So you sort of get back to business. You dont really think too much about whats going on. Its been four years. As far as it goes right now, its great.James said he and his boss are connected again.I think its really good, James said. We had one bad moment, and it just overshadowed all the great times we had together, and now were back together. We both have something in common: to bring a championship back to this city, and thats what it comes down to.James said he andd Gilbert have the opportunity and obligation to represent the franchise the right way.

However, Gilbert was careful not make any proclamations about how far the thinks his team can go this season.Well, I learned my lessons on guarantees and predictions and stuff, so I dont do much of that anymore these days, Gilbert said. I do believe we put together a team and a coaching staff and a front office thats worked very hard certainly to put us in a position to compete at a high level. Thats why you play the games.The past four years were painful ones for the Cavs, whose biggest wins came in the draft lottery. Gilbert was asked if he felt he deserved James back.I dont know if deserve is a word that I sort of look at in this context, he said. No, unless youre really doing some significant harm to another human being, I dont think the bridge is ever burned. We had a night there where emotions were flying high on all sides. ... Things like that happen a lot in business where people have phone calls and heated exchanges, and people are writing each other emails and letters, and then the next day theyre eating lunch and doing business. Its not a be-all or end-all type of thing.Gilbert said the difference in the sports world is that the arguments become public knowledge.I think the franchise deserves what it has here, and I think LeBron deserves the city of Cleveland and the franchise, and all the perks that are around him, he said.
