MIAMI (AP) -- Jose Reyes hit a two-out RBI single in the 10th inning Tuesday night, and the Miami Marlins overcame an awful ninth inning to snap the Atlanta Braves' four-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory. With one out in the 10th, pinch-hitter Rob Brantly was walked by Cory Gearrin (0-1), and Gorkys Hernandez was hit by a pitch. Following a strikeout, Reyes hit a blooper that fell in front of a diving Jason Heyward in right field, and Brantly scored without a play. Atlanta lost to Miami for only the fourth time in 14 meetings. The Braves rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the ninth to tie the game. Heyward doubled to start the inning against Steve Cishek, and Chipper Jones walked on a 3-2 pitch. With one out, Dan Uggla singled home a run, and Brian McCann followed with a two-run double off Mike Dunn to tie the score. Dunn struck out Michael Bourn with runners at the corners to end the inning. The Braves' rally spoiled a career-best outing by Nathan Eovaldi of the Marlins. He allowed no runs and only four hits while pitching eight innings for the first time. Eovaldi, a 22-year-old rookie, had lost his last four starts and came into the game with the lowest winning percentage of any NL pitcher at 4-12. But he permitted just two runners to reach second base. The Braves were so flummoxed by Eovaldi that slugger Heyward bunted with two outs and none on in the sixth. He reached on a single but was stranded. John Buck hit a two-run homer, tripled and scored twice for Miami. But he grounded out against Gearrin to end the ninth, when the Marlins put runners at the corners with no outs but failed to score. Heath Bell (3-5) pitched a perfect 10th. Atlanta's Paul Maholm allowed four hits and two runs in 6 2-3 innings. The game began with the retractable roof open for the eighth time this season, and the first since June 13. The roof was closed when light rain began to fall in the fifth inning. Buck hit his first triple of the season in the third inning and scored on a two-out single by Hernandez. Center fielder Bourn misplayed Buck's deep drive, pulling up short of the wall near the 418-foot sign and then leaping in vain for the ball. The Marlins added two runs in the seventh. Austin Kearns doubled with two outs, and Maholm was replaced by Peter Moylan, who gave up Buck's 11th homer. The Marlins played without slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who missed his second consecutive game with a strained muscle in his side. He's expected to rejoin the starting lineup Friday. NOTES: Braves SS Paul Janish dislocated his left shoulder diving for an infield single in the ninth inning. ... McCann was back in the lineup after missing two starts with right hamstring tendinitis. ... RHP Josh Johnson, scheduled to start Wednesday against Atlanta, is 6-4 with a 2.17 ERA in 18 games against the Braves. ... OF-1B Logan Morrison is the Marlins' nominee for the Clemente Award, which recognizes the player who best represents the game through positive contributions on and off the field. ... Rob Brantly, a rookie C who threw out a base stealer for the first time in his career Monday, sheepishly admitted he missed a pickoff sign from the dugout before the pitch. "He's a kid," manager Ozzie Guillen said. "He does stuff that makes you laugh."
