ATLANTA -- It felt just like the first time for Lucas Harrell -- from his first pitch, to the catcher behind the plate.Making his first major league start in more than two years, Harrell allowed one run in six innings and the Atlanta Braves beat Jose Fernandez and the Miami Marlins 9-1 on Saturday.Harrell (1-0) was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett for the start.Freddie Freeman hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Jace Peterson hit a three-run homer in Atlantas seven-run sixth that knocked Fernandez (10-4) out of the game.Harrell made his first start since April 15, 2014 with Houston against Kansas City. He made his major league debut with the White Sox in 2010 -- when current Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski was behind the plate.Throwing to Pierzynski added to Harrells sense of comfort.Its just one of those things where if youve done it before youre not going to be overly excited, Harrell said.It has been a long road to get back here. I felt like Ive worked real hard. Ive been up and had a little success before. It was just nice because A.J. was with me in Chicago and he knew my stuff and we were on the same page all game.Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said Harrell will remain in the rotation for at least one more start.Harrell, 31, allowed one run on three hits with one walk. His start was especially important one day after the Braves exhausted their bullpen in a 7-5 loss to the Marlins that lasted 12 innings.Today was huge, Snitker said. Lucas was really good. ... We needed that for the bullpen.Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Harrell carved us up pretty good, honestly. We didnt do much with him.Fernandez gave up a career-high nine runs, six earned, on eight hits and one walk in 5 2/3 innings.The six earned runs allowed matched Fernandezs career high.Rough day, man, Fernandez said. I just have to put it behind me.Fernandez drove in the decisive runs as a pinch-hitter in Miamis win Friday night.The Marlins, who began the day third in the NL wild-card standings, fell to 3-8 against the last-place Braves.The four-game series will conclude on Sunday at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in a salute-the-troops game at the military installation.Peterson doubled to left field in the first, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on Freemans 14th homer, a high shot caught by a fan on the front row of the center-field seats.Braves rookie left-hander Dario Alvarez gave up singles to Chris Johnson and Jeff Mathis in the ninth before hitting Dietrich with a pitch to load the bases. Alvarez struck out pinch-hitter Giancarlo Stanton and Ichiro Suzuki to end the game.11 TO GOSuzukis triple to center field in the third inning drove in Derek Dietrich, who had a leadoff single, for Miamis only run. Suzuki, 42, has 2,989 hits in the majors -- 11 from reaching 3,000.LUCKY 13Petersons first-inning double gave him a career-best 13-game hitting streak. He is the only Braves player to have a streak as long as 10 games this season.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: OF Ender Inciarte was held out with what he says is a minor right groin strain.

Only one number matters, and its 16.The Warriors chase of being the greatest team in NBA history last season fell short in a big way, when the team that posted the best regular-season record of all time blew a 3-1 lead in the finals and lost the title to Cleveland.So entering this season, any talk of setting another win record -- even after adding Kevin Durant -- would be foolish. The only thing the Warriors are interested in is getting the 16 postseason wins that would secure a second championship in three years, and theyll again be the consensus pick to get out of the Western Conference for the third straight season.Theyre as good as it gets in the NBA, said new Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton, who most recently was a Warriors assistant.Much of the look of the West has changed. Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett -- all champions, all future Hall of Famers -- are now all retired as well. And theres new coaches in Sacramento (Dave Joerger), Memphis (David Fizdale), Minnesota (Tom Thibodeau) and Houston (Mike DAntoni), along with Walton taking over for the Lakers.But the targets in the West, they remain the same. Its still the Warriors, then San Antonio, and from there it might be anyones guess.A look at the West, in predicted order of finish:---PLAYOFF BOUND1. Golden State -- Warriors need 60 victories this season to be NBAs first club to win 200 in a three-year stretch since Chicago (1996-98).2. San Antonio -- Until proven otherwise, the Spurs should be considered a very viable contender. Theyll pace themselves until playoff time.3. Utah -- Yes, the Jazz wont have Gordon Hayward for a while. No, this isnt a stretch, not with the highly capable Quin Snyder in charge.4. L.A. Clippers -- The Clippers know this has to be the season. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan still should create a lot of fear.5. Portland -- Surprises last season, the Blazers wont surprise anyone this time around. All-Star snub victim Damian Lillard is among the elite.6. Oklahoma City -- You may have heard, the Thunder lost Durant to Golden State. Well see what a motivated Russell Westbrook does.7. Minnesota -- Its time for the Timberwolves to break through, and with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins the best is still yet to come.8. Memphis -- New coach Fizdale gets $153 million man Mike Conley to run his offense, which is quite the perk for any rookie head coach.---IN THE MIX9. Dallas -- Dirk Nowitzki is 38 years old and still averages 18 points per game. Big question: How will Harrison Barnes handle being a max guy?10. Houston -- Questions aabout defense are the only reason why the Rockets arent higher.dddddddddddd If -- if -- what DAntoni does works, look out.11. New Orleans -- The Pelicans are already ailing, and the season hasnt even started. Keeping Anthony Davis on the floor is an absolute must.---FACING LONG ODDS12. Sacramento -- The Kings new arena is fantastic and DeMarcus Cousins is a superstar, though his new love for 3s actually helps defenses.13. L.A. Lakers -- The last season in which the Lakers were without Bryant was 1995-96. How long ago? Magic Johnson was on that team.14. Denver -- Danilo Gallinari is 28, and hes one of the oldest guys on this rebuilding team. Rookie Jamal Murray might be a big hit in Denver.15. Phoenix -- The Suns havent been to the playoffs in six seasons, and that streak seems likely to reach seven. Earl Watson has a tough job.---WHAT TO KNOWSPURS FOR 50: The Spurs won 50 games in each of Duncans seasons (excluding the 1998-99 season, which was only 50 games). Duncan may be retired, but the Spurs still seem like a lock to not just win 50 again but also reach the playoffs for what would be the 20th straight season and the 27th time in the last 28 years.BEAT THE EAST: The elite teams in the West feasted on Eastern Conference teams last season. Oklahoma City went 18-12 against the East, the Clippers went 22-8, the Spurs were 24-6 and the Warriors were 27-3 -- that is, until the NBA Finals, when they went 3-4 against Cleveland.STRANGE SEASON: Houston got in the playoffs last year at 41-41. Dont expect that to happen again. The last time a .500 record was good enough for a spot on the West postseason bracket was 1999. Since then, theres been 14 seasons in which a team went .500 or better and still missed the West playoffs.YOUNG MVPs: Theres been plenty of instances of two former MVPs being on the same team, but the pairing of Durant and Stephen Curry in Golden State marks the first time its happened when both players were under 30. Its also the first time back-to-back MVPs (Durant in 2013-14, Curry in 2014-15) became teammates since Charles Barkley and Hakeem Olajuwon did in Houston in the mid-1990s.POWER PACKED: Over the last five seasons, the teams with the most regular-season wins, in order, are San Antonio (292), Oklahoma City (266), the Clippers (262) and Golden State (261) -- all West teams. Eastern Conference club Miami is No. 5 in that span, with 251.---Follow AP Basketball Writer Tim Reynolds on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/ByTimReynolds Jerseys NFL China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
