ATLANTA -- Jacob Turner is sticking in Miamis rotation for at least one more start. 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 Washington Redskins have signed free agent offensive lineman Mike McGlynn.SAN DIEGO -- Padres manager Bud Black had talked to Tyson Ross once or twice that it was getting to be time that the lanky right-hander threw his first career shutout. In his 55th career start, Ross got it, in dominating fashion. Ross threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout, struck out nine and walked none to help San Diego beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-0 Wednesday for its first series sweep since September. Ross got all the support he needed when Rene Rivera hit a three-run single off big league ERA leader Johnny Cueto in the first inning. "Its special," said the 27-year-old Ross, whos in his second season with San Diego. "Its the first time Ive been able to finish. A couple of games Ive gone eight innings and kind of ran out of gas but tonight I had enough in the tank and was able to finish." Ross (7-8) was dominating. He retired the first 11 batters before Todd Frazier singled to left. Frazier had two of the Reds three hits. Only Reds batter reached second, when Brayan Pena doubled with one out in the eighth. Ross then retired the side. "I think that he really smelled the finish line, which was good," Black said. "Hes been close a couple of times. He was there today. We talked just briefly after the eighth inning. There was no doubt in my mind he was going to go back out there and put up a zero. "Its a tremendous feather in his cap," said Black, a lefty who had 12 shutouts in 296 career big league starts. "You do it once, you can do it many more times. Good for him." Ross said getting the complete game was due to "being efficient early. I had a lot of ground balls, a lot of outs in the first three pitches to hitters. I kept the pitch count low early and that allowed me to finish it off later." Frazier said Ross "had a pretty good slider. I think thats his best pitch. He kept most of us off-balance. We hit the ball hard sometimes. A couple of guys squared some up. To me, he just made a couple of mistakes. A good pitcher, when he makes mistakes, you have to take care of the business." The Reds lost the last three games on 10-game trip after winning six of seven, including a four-game sweep of the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants before coming to San Diego. &"A frustrating team in general in that we came in playing really well and come out of it losing three straight," manager Bryan Price said.dddddddddddd. "We had a chance to make up some ground on Milwaukee and St. Louis and we werent able to take advantage of it." The Padres beat the Reds 1-0 Monday despite getting one hit, and then had a season-high 16 hits in an 8-2 victory Tuesday night. The Padres, who tied their season high with their fourth straight win, hadnt swept a series since Sept. 6-8 against Colorado. With the bases loaded and two outs in the first, Rivera hit a blooper to the gap that hit off the heel of the glove of diving centre fielder Billy Hamilton and rolled away to give San Diego a 3-0 lead. San Diego appeared to take a 4-0 lead on Seth Smiths two-out double in the fourth, but the Reds appealed that Irving Falu missed third base. The umpires agreed, calling Falu out to end the inning. San Diego manager Bud Black argued, but the call was upheld on appeal. Ross had received only one run of support in his previous five starts, and he knocked in that run in his last start, a 2-1 loss to Arizona. Ross was 0-4 in his last five starts. Cueto (8-6) came in with the best ERA in the majors, 1.88. It rose to 1.99. He allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings, struck out eight and walked three. NOTES: The Reds were swept for the first time since April 25-27. ... The Padres placed SS Everth Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring, retroactive to Tuesday, and selected INF Brooks Conrad from Triple-A El Paso.
