ATLANTA -- Interim Braves manager Brian Snitker had a funny feeling Jose Fernandez might beat Atlanta with his bat.Snitkers hunch was right.Fernandez, the Miami ace, delivered a pinch-hit two-run double that sent the Braves to a 7-5 loss in the 12th inning Friday night.Before that inning started, I was sort of trying to look over in the dugout, Snitker said. I was hoping maybe theyd sent him back (to the hotel) for his start tomorrow. It didnt surprise me when he came out. It was kind of the guy I expected.Making the first pinch-hit appearance of his career, Fernandez doubled into the gap in left-center, easily scoring runners from second and first base.Thats always been like a dream, play the outfield or get to pinch hit like that, Fernandez said. When it actually happened, it was like, `Oh my God, were really doing this. My heart rate started, (but) the main goal was just try to hit a ground ball somewhere and get a run and go home.The dramatic moment overshadowed the meltdown of closer A.J. Ramos, who blew a rare save in the ninth for Miami. Ramos had converted 33 straight saves, one short of the franchise record, before Tyler Flowers led off with his sixth homer to force a 5-5 tie.Really I was just trying to be on time, Flowers said. That guy has good weapons. Hes been extremely successful in that role hes in. You hope to get one pitch and be ready for it. I was able to do that.Fernandez, one of baseballs most dynamic starters, began the game with a .222 batting average in 27 at-bats. With the pitchers spot due up in the 12th and no position players available, Fernandez batted for reliever Nick Wittgren (3-1) and delivered the big hit.Before the game, Mattingly said that Ramos would remain the closer after the team traded for Fernando Rodney. Rodney did his job, facing four batters in a scoreless eighth, but Ramos wasnt as lucky.Rodney, whose 253 career saves rank fifth on the active list, converted all 17 of his chances this year for the Padres, but Mattingly said the plan was for him to work primarily as a setup man with Miami.The Marlins snapped a three-game skid and improved to 3-7 against Atlanta, the NLs worst team.Casey Kelly (0-3), the sixth Atlanta pitcher, took the loss.Marcell Ozuna went 4 for 6, homered and drove in three runs for Miami. Martin Prado, Christian Yelich and Ozuna each had a two-out hit in the seventh when Miami scored twice to take a 5-4 lead.Braves ace Julio Teheran began the night having pitched 23 consecutive scoreless innings, but his career-best streak ended quickly when Miami took a 3-0 lead in the first on Derek Dietrichs leadoff homer and Ozunas 17th homer, a two-run shot.Teheran avoided trouble in the second when he struck out Yelich to strand the bases loaded, but Yelich chased him in the seventh with an RBI single that made it 3-all.Teheran allowed 11 hits and five runs and struck out six in 6 2/3 innings. His ERA rose .26 points to 2.72.Atlanta cut the lead to 3-2 in the second on Erick Aybars RBI single and Teherans groundout.Ozunas RBI single in the seventh came off Chris Withrow for the go-ahead run.In his previous 12 starts, Teheran was just 3-5 despite a 1.61 ERA and a .160 opponents batting average.It was a battle, Teheran said. It was kind of a different game. Youre not going to feel the same way every game. You try to, but sometimes its not going to happen.Marlins starter Justin Nicolino gave up seven hits, four runs, one walk and struck out one in five innings. The left-hander blew a 3-0 lead when Chase dArnaud hit his first career homer, a two-run shot, to put the Braves up 4-0 in the fifth.Recalled before the game from Triple-A New Orleans, Nicolino has an 8.22 ERA over his last three starts.KER-PLUNK AGAINDietrich was hit by a pitch in the second, marking the third time this series and 16th this season, most in the majors. Even the visiting dugout at Turner Field hasnt been a safe place Dietrich, who was hit in the head by Yelichs foul liner on May 29. Carlos Delgado set the Marlins single-season record after getting hit by 17 pitches in 2005.TRAINERS ROOMAtlanta CF Ender Inciarte strained his right groin and had to leave the game in the sixth inning.TRANSACTION WIRELHP Jo-Jo Reyes was designated for assignment with Rodneys arrival. The Marlins optioned RHP Brian Ellington to New Orleans to make room for Nicolino.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Fernandez (10-3) has a 2.15 ERA and a 4-1 in seven career starts against Atlanta.Braves: RHP Lucas Harrell (0-0) will make his first start since 2014 with Houston. He went 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA in nine appearances at Triple-A Gwinnett.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are set to be the first rookie quarterback-running back combo to start an opener for the Dallas Cowboys since Roger Staubach and Calvin Hill nearly 50 years ago.There will be a sense of anticipation on the New York sideline as well Sunday when the Giants visit the Cowboys. Its the debut of coach Ben McAdoo following a 12-year run under Tom Coughlin that included two Super Bowl titles.If you dont get a little anxious to go play and go coach, you probably have to find something else to do, said McAdoo , the teams offensive coordinator the past two seasons. I think thats normal, thats healthy.Prescott, the fourth-round pick suddenly starting because of injuries to Tony Romo (broken back) and Kellen Moore (broken ankle), and Elliott arent the type to admit to nerves. But they also understand the significance of something that hasnt happened since 1969 with one the NFLs storied franchises.I think were prepared, said Elliott, the fourth overall pick who was limited to one preseason game by a hamstring injury. I think that were both very poised, were both excited to compete. We dont want any drop-offs just because were rookies.The Cowboys didnt survive without Romo last year, going 4-12 while losing 11 of the 12 games he missed with a twice-broken left collarbone. Plus, 2014 All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant was limited all season after breaking his foot in the opener against the Giants. He missed seven games.A pair of veterans in Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel couldnt keep the Cowboys in contention last year, and now theyll try with a rookie. Prescott earned the job with a strong showing in three preseason games.I think we both have confidence in ourselves and each other, said Prescott, the career passing leader at Mississippi State. I think we need to stay even-keel with our emotions throughout the game, and I think well have some fun out there.Things to consider as the Cowboys take an 8-0 record in openers against the Giants into the fourth opener in the past five seasons between the NFC East rivals:GIANTS O-LINE: This is the biggest question mark for McAdoo and the Giantts, who were 6-10 last season.dddddddddddd The line (LT Ereck Flowers, LG Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, RG John Jerry and RT Marshall Newhouse) is the same as last year but wasnt good in the preseason. Tackle Will Beatty, who was released in a salary cap move earlier in the year, re-signed late in training camp. Pugh insists the line will improve once the team starts game planning. That remains to be seen.ON THE OTHER HAND: The Cowboys believe they have one of the best lines in football, anchored by three first-round picks from the past six drafts, all of them Pro Bowlers the past two seasons (LT Tyron Smith, C Travis Frederick and RG Zack Martin). Elliott has some star potential running behind them.CRUZ RETURNS: WR Victor Cruz will be playing in his first game since the middle of the 2014 season, when he injured a knee. He missed last season with a calf injury. If Cruz can show some of his old form, rookie Sterling Shepard of Oklahoma lives up to the hype, and Odell Beckham Jr. does his thing, Eli Manning is going to have a big year.WHERES THE RUSH: The Cowboys hope they have some household names on their defensive line by this time next year. Right now they dont, and theres no telling who will take the heat off a secondary with plenty to prove by getting to the quarterback. Dallas knows this much: last years sack leader, DeMarcus Lawrence, will miss the first four games on a substance-abuse suspension.WATCH THE DEFENSE: After having the NFLs worst defense last season, the Giants have the potential to make big strides . New York signed DE Olivier Vernon, DT Damon Harrison and CB Janoris Jenkins in free agency, and drafted CB Eli Apple, Elliotts teammate at Ohio State, 10th overall. S Darian Thompson, the third-round pick, was a contender to start had he not injured a shoulder in the preseason. He is practicing but his status for the opener is iffy.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Jerseys NFL China Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Discount Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Cheap Nike Dolphins Jerseys Cheap Nike Patriots Jerseys Cheap Nike Jets Jerseys Cheap Nike Bengals Jerseys Cheap Nike Browns Jerseys Cheap Nike Steelers Jerseys Cheap Nike Texans Jerseys Cheap Nike Colts Jerseys Cheap Nike Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Nike Titans Jerseys Cheap Nike Broncos Jerseys ' ' '
