                === Braves, Marlins continue series in Miami ===
 
 (Sports Network) - Colombian righty Julio Teheran can pick up consecutive wins
 against  the Miami  Marlins on  Tuesday night  when the  Atlanta Braves  visit
 Marlins Park for the second of four games.
 
 Teheran  is 2-0  in three career meetings with the Marlins, including his last
 start  on  Aug. 30 in Atlanta,  in which he  tossed 6 1/3 innings of four-hit,
 one-run ball in a 2-1 triumph.
 
 The  other win came  July 9 in Miami, when he was touched for seven hits and a
 single earned run over 7 1/3 innings while earning a 6-4 victory.
 
 Eight  starts in  between those two wins  saw Teheran go 3-3, while the Braves
 were 5-3 with him on the mound.
 
 He's 4-4 in 12 road starts this season, with the last road victory coming Aug.
 6 at Washington.
 
 He's  opposed by  Bronx-born righty Tom Koehler, who starts against the Braves
 for the second time.
 
 The  27-year-old  got a no-decision at  Atlanta on July 2 after allowing three
 runs on five innings of a game the Marlins ultimately lost, 11-3.
 
 He  won  two of his  subsequent three starts into  early August, but has since
 gone  0-3  in his  last six  outings while  his earned  run average has ticked
 upward to 4.70.
 
 Koehler is 1-4 in 10 appearances in Miami this season.
 
 On Monday, Kris Medlen worked 6 1/3 strong innings to lead the Braves to a 5-2
 win.
 
 Medlen  (13-12) allowed two  runs on six hits while fanning six to pick up his
 third straight win.
 
 Evan  Gattis had  a two-run  double, while  Chris Johnson  and Elliot  Johnson
 finished  with  one RBI apiece  for the Braves,  who snapped a four-game skid.
 With  the win,  Atlanta remains 12 games ahead of the Washington Nationals for
 the top spot in the NL East.
 
 Craig  Kimbrel worked a perfect ninth to notch his league leading 45th save of
 the season.
 
 Ed Lucas drove in both runs for the Marlins, losers in four of their last five
 games.  Henderson Alvarez (3-4) yielded five runs on five hits and three walks
 over four innings to absorb the loss.
 
 Atlanta  won 10 of  the first 15 games with the Marlins this season, including
 two of three in a series from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1.
