Evan Gattis comes through in the clutch again
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Marlins should probably stop pitching to Braves catcher Evan Gattis in clutch situations. Two days after Gattis beat the Marlins with a walk-off home run, Gattis broke an eighth-inning tie Wednesday with a pinch-hit, two-run double off A.J. Ramos to lead Atlanta to a 3-1 win.

Despite the game-winning hits, Gattis is batting just .150 (3 for 20) with one double, one home run and three RBI in his last six games (four starts). He does have five home runs and 10 RBI through 16 games.

Aaron Harang outstanding once again, strikes out 11
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves starting pitcher Aaron Harang struck out a season-best 11 batters Wednesday against the Marlins. However, Harang did not factor into the decision despite the strong outing.

Harang got off to a great start Wednesday, retiring the side in order in the first inning and recording two strikeouts. The Marlins didn't get their first base runner until Adeiny Hechavarria's single leading off the third inning. 

Harang held onto a 1-0 lead until the Marlins got a two-out RBI single from Giancarlo Stanton in the sixth inning to tie the game. 

The veteran right-hander allowed one run on six hits and one walk in six innings. He hasn't allowed more than one earned run in any of his five starts. He has a 0.85 ERA. Harang is expected to make his next start in a rematch with the Marlins Wednesday.

Freddie Freeman getting treated for dryness in his eyes
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said Wednesday he has been dealing with some dryness in his eyes, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Freeman said he met Tuesday with the team optometrist, who said Freeman has some "abrasions in the whites of his eyes." They are treating the condition with drops and gel Freeman puts in his eyes before he goes to sleep.

Freeman was in the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins. The team has an off-day Thursday.

"Everything is all right -- nothing on the corneas," Freeman said. "I had some little abrasions on the whites of my eyes, and it was dry, so I had to clean my lids out and my tear ducts and get them going again. He said I should be fully healthy by Friday. I’ve got to deal with it a little bit (Wednesday), but I’ll be good."
