ATLANTA -- Nathan Eovaldi had dominated the Atlanta Braves in his last seven starts against them. Kobe Bryant Jersey . That was hardly the case this time as Freddie Freeman broke a 2 for 44 season slump against the Marlins with a three-run homer that sent Miami to a 6-1 loss Wednesday night. "Hes always a threat up there regardless of how hes been swinging," Eovaldi said. "Hes got the power and he just went down there and hit a good pitch. But after that I was able to establish the fastball down and away and start working to my advantage." Ervin Santana won his second straight start for the Braves, who pulled within one game of first-place Washington in the NL East. Fourth-place Miami, which snapped a three-game winning streak, is 8 1/2 games back. Freeman, an All-Star first baseman, hit his 14th homer to give the Braves a 5-0 lead in the four-run second inning. Santana (9-6) won for third time in four starts, giving up six hits and one run with three walks and 10 strikeouts in 7 1-3 innings. "We just werent able to make an adjustment on Santanas off-speed pitches," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "He threw a lot of sliders and changeups and kept us off balance the rest of the night." Santana registered double-digit strikeouts for the second time this year and the 13th time in his 10-year career when pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin whiffed to begin the eighth. But Santana walked Christian Yelich and gave up a single to Donovan Solano, leading manager Fredi Gonzalez to bring in Jordan Walden, who struck out Giancarlo Stanton and Casey McGehee to end the threat. Eovaldi (5-6) failed to win for his fifth straight start after allowing six hits, five runs and two walks in seven innings. He struck out two. Eovaldi began the night with a 4-0 record and a 2.21 ERA in eight starts against the NL East this year and was 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA in his last seven starts against Atlanta. "Its great the he kept us in there, kept us from having to use a bunch of bullpen guys," Redmond said. "But I think where we are right now for him is for him to win games at the big-league level hes got to eliminate those big numbers in an inning." The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the first on Justin Uptons sacrifice fly RBI. In the second, Atlanta went up 5-0 on Tommy La Stellas RBI single and Freemans homer. Miami made it 5-1 in the third on Christian Yelichs RBI single. In the Braves eighth, Jason Heyward singled against Sam Dyson, stole second base and took third on catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchias throwing error. Heyward then broke for home on Chris Johnsons grounder to shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, who threw to Saltalamacchia to get Heyward in a run-down. Third baseman McGehee, however, missed tagging Heyward, who was called safe by third base umpire Alan Porter as he dove back to the bag. Marlins manager Mike Redmond did not ask for the play to be reviewed, but he was ejected after arguing with Porter. "I just thought he (Heyward) was out of the baseline," Redmond said. "Maybe I was more frustrated that we didnt get the out in that situation than anything." Heyward scored when the next batter, Gerald Laird, singled to make it 6-1. Notes: Yelich went 2 for 3 and has a 17-game hitting streak on the road and his hitting .411 in his last 73 at-bats away from Miami. ... Heyward went 2 for 4 to boost his average five points to .409 in 61 at-bats against Miami since last Aug. 3. ... The Marlins dropped to 64-112 at Atlanta, including a 15-27 mark since the start of 2010. ... RHP Anthony Varvaro was placed on the paternity leave list as the Braves recalled RHP Gus Schlosser from Triple-A Gwinnett. ... Atlanta LHP Chasen Shreve pitched the ninth for Atlanta and faced five batters. Nick Van Exel Jersey . Samir Nasris 88th-minute equalizer at Etihad Stadium will be of little consolation to City, which is now six points behind league leader Liverpool and four points behind second-place Chelsea. Third-place City has a game in hand but the surprise result against Sunderland, coupled with Sundays 3-2 loss at Liverpool, may be a setback too far in its bid for a second championship in three seasons. Brook Lopez Jersey . Johns IceCaps erased an early two-goal deficit to come from behind and defeat the host Portland Pirates 5-4 on Saturday in American Hockey League action. http://www.lakersbasketballshop.com/Kyle-Kuzma-Jersey/ .S. routed Sweden 7-0 Sunday to win its fourth straight title and seventh overall under-18 world championship. Olson earned his third shutout of the tournament and the Americans allowed only four goals in six games to set an International Ice Hockey Federation under-18 record.NEW YORK -- The Cleveland Cavaliers lottery luck just keeps going. The Cavaliers continued their remarkable run Tuesday, winning the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft for the second straight year and third time in the last four. They moved up from the ninth spot, when they had just a 1.7 per cent chance of winning the top selection. "It seems surreal," Cavs vice chairman Jeff Cohen said. "This is three out of four years and we had a 1.7 per cent chance of coming up with the first pick and we pulled it off again." They drafted Kyrie Irving first in 2011 and will hope to do better with this win than last year, when they took Anthony Bennett, who had a forgettable rookie season. Nick Gilbert, the son of Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert, was on the podium for the previous two wins, but general manager David Griffin was there this time. Griffin had a pin on his lapel from his late grandmother and was carrying one of Nick Gilberts bowties, which was as lucky in his breast pocket as it was with Nick wearing it. The Cavs can now choose among the likes of Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid of Kansas, Dukes Jabari Parker, or another player from whats considered a deep draft. "This means everything," Cohen said. "This is the deepest draft arguably since LeBron (James) and Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony came out." The Cavs won that one, too, in 2003, when they picked James. But they have been lottery regulars since he bolted for Miami in 2010, and they want that to stop. "Rebuilding is a process and we lost a player a number of years back that it was going (to take) some time. Quite frankly its taken a little bit longer then wed like, but weve been patient," Cohen said. "I think now is the time were going to reap the rewards of our patience." The Milwaukee Bucks fell one spot to second and the Philadelphia 76ers will draft third. The Bucks had a 25 per cent chance of winning after a league-worst 15-67 record, but the team with the best odds hasnt won since 2004. The expected strength of the class led to speculation that teams were tanking in hopes of getting a high pick. But the Cavs had playoff expectations, hoping a strong season could make them attractive to James if he was interested in returning home as a free agent. Nick Gilbert said last year he expected the Cavs to be done with the lottery, but they were right back in Times Square after a disappoiinting season that resulted in them firing Mike Brown after just one year and a 33-49 record in his second stint with the team. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Jersey. Another top selection surely will make Cleveland more attractive to prospective coaches. The city of Cleveland may be on a 50-year championship drought, but sure does have this lottery thing figured out. The 2011 win was also a stunner, when the Cavs moved up from the No. 8 spot with a pick they had acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers. And by moving up this year, they hurt the Detroit Pistons, who started eighth but by falling back, had to trade the pick to Charlotte as part of a deal for Ben Gordon. Orlando dropped a spot to fourth and also will have the No. 12 pick from Denver. Utah is No. 5 and the Lakers and Boston Celtics couldnt make the most of rare lottery appearances, with Los Angeles at No. 7 and Boston at No. 6. The 76ers couldnt move up even with Hall of Famer Julius Erving representing them, but they will have two top-10 picks: their own and New Orleans at No. 10 from last years trade that sent Jrue Holiday to the Pelicans. "If we had No. 3 alone, I would be a little disappointed and so would our group. But the fact that we also have the 10th pick, we may have done better than anyone else," Erving said. "We can get two players out of this draft or leverage those two picks." Still, the big winners -- again -- were the Cavs. Nick Gilbert was the hit of the 2011 lottery, his big glasses and bowtie charming viewers. This time it was Mallory Edens, the 18-year-old daughter of incoming Bucks co-owner Wes Edens. She gained thousands of Twitter followers after her brief on-camera interview. But her Bucks pin wasnt lucky enough to end the run of back luck for the worst teams. "I was really nervous, but Im really happy we got the second pick," Mallory Edens said. Things kept rolling for the Cavs, who duplicated the feat of Orlando, which went back-to-back at No. 1 in 1992-93. The latter win, after the Magic had gone 41-41 in Shaquille ONeals rookie season, caused the league to change the lottery to a weighted format that gave the worst teams the most chances. The tanking talk has led to discussions to change it again, something Commissioner Adam Silver has said will be discussed this summer. But he has also said that if there was an ideal solution, the league would have implemented it by now. The Cavs like it just as it is.
