Marlins-Braves Preview

(AP) -- Time is running out on the Miami Marlins' slim wild-card chances, but hope isn't completely lost with six of their next nine games against the playoff- hopeful Atlanta Braves.

The problem for the Marlins entering Friday night's series opener is their top two hitters are scuffling and have struggled mightily against Ervin Santana, who also happens to have won his last six starts at Turner Field.

Miami (65-67) opened a nine-game trip four games out of the NL's second wild-card spot, but it's fallen 5 1/2 off the pace after dropping four of six. The Marlins were outscored 14-3 in losing their final two games to an Angels team battling for the AL West crown.
