Carrying the confidence he gained while conquering Coors Field to record his first career win last week, Lucas Sims subdued the Mariners' powerful lineup and benefited from the two-hit performance Nick Markakis notched in the Braves' 4-0 win on Tuesday night at SunTrust Park.

A swim move to dive for: Phillips makes splash
Andrew Albers proved successful with Triple-A Gwinnett, and he has given the Mariners what they needed in two starts since he was acquired from the Braves for cash considerations on Aug. 11.
Tyler Flowers has promised to garner attention with the catching equipment he has specially ordered and the always-entertaining Brandon Phillips is sure to make an impression two weeks from now, when Major League players are given a chance to express their individuality by personalizing their uniforms.
Little Leaguer crushes homer at SunTrust Park
R.A. Dickey is providing the Braves with quality innings and has been a veteran presence to their young starting rotation. The knuckleballer looks to keep it going against the Mariners -- who are two games back for an American League Wild Card spot -- in the rubber match of a three-game Interleague series Wednesday night at SunTrust Park.
Blessed with speed, athleticism and the kind of power you wouldn't expect from a guy who might make Jose Altuve feel tall, Ozzie Albies has spent the past three weeks tackling the challenges that have arisen since he made his much-anticipated Major League debut on Aug. 1.

Provided a chance to pitch at SunTrust Park, albeit in a different manner than he had envisioned two weeks ago, Andrew Albers helped the Mariners stay in the thick of the American League Wild Card race with Monday night's 6-5 win over the Braves.
Albies' errant throw leads to laughs
Braves right-handed reliever Dan Winkler got emotional after recently receiving a clean bill of health from Dr. James Andrew's office. As he drove away from the noted surgeon's Pensacola, Fla. office, he passed the hotel, where he had sat a little more than a year earlier and pondered what life would be like after having to undergo a major elbow surgery for the second time in less than two years.

After helping Sean Newcomb escape a pair of bases-loaded threats at SunTrust Park on Sunday afternoon, Tyler Flowers ensured Drew Storen would not encounter the same good fortune. His grand slam highlighted a six-run fifth inning that allowed the Braves to cruise toward an 8-1 win over the Reds.
Sean Newcomb aims to reach a point in his career when he will not be forced to battle trouble as frequently as he has during the first few months of his career. But in the process, the Braves' southpaw will continue to rely on that same quiet intensity that fueled him as he went to the ground and found a way to finish a fantastic play in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Reds at SunTrust Park.
Yankees prospects Miguel Andujar and Domingo German led Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to a 3-0 win over Durham with a pair of strong performances on Sunday.
During Saturday night's 11-8 loss to the Reds at SunTrust Park, Braves third baseman Brandon Phillips showed his former teammates he can still be as impressive as he was during his days as their National League Gold Glove Award-winning second baseman.
Reds outfielder Scott Schebler highlighted a three-hit performance with a pair of doubles and proved to be one of Julio Teheran's primary nemesis during Saturday night's 11-8 win over the Braves at SunTrust Park.
Trevor Stephan, the Yankees' No. 30 prospect, led the Class A Short Season Staten Island pitching staff with a dominant performance in a 5-0 win over Lowell on Saturday.
As Matt Kemp has repeatedly been hindered by hamstring problems this season, it has been easy to forget he exited May on pace for a second straight 30-homer season and ranked among the top 10 National League leaders in both batting average and OPS.
Chip Caray is a third-generation broadcaster. He is following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Harry, and his father, Skip. However, this is not a story of a kid who grew up hanging around the ballpark with his grandfather and his father.
Sal Romano halted his recent struggles by delivering one of the finest starts of his rookie season and R.A. Dickey's attempt to produce another gem evaporated as the Reds tagged him for three home runs in the sixth inning of Friday night's 5-3 win over the Braves at SunTrust Park.
Long before he became the first African-American manager to win a World Series or patrolled the outfield at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, Cito Gaston was just a young rookie realizing a lifelong dream.
It began four decades ago, after Hank Aaron ended his 23 years of greatness as a player in the Major Leagues and was given a massive office at old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium by the ballclub he helped to make famous.
Ender Inciarte has not suddenly evolved into some kind of legitimate power threat. But as the Braves' National League Gold Glove center fielder has matured offensively, he has enhanced his fly ball percentage and displayed his home run trot much more frequently than ever envisioned.
Ender Inciarte homered twice and the Braves launched four solo shots off Rockies rookie starter Jeff Hoffman in a 10-4 victory at Coors Field. The result pushed the Rockies into a tie with the D-backs for the top National League Wild Card spot.
Fan makes impressive catch of Inciarte's HR
If there was any doubt about whether Forrest Whitley was ready for the Double-A level, the teenage right-hander laid it to rest on Thursday by tossing six scoreless innings with a career-high 11 strikeouts in his debut for Corpus Christi.
After scoring three or fewer runs in eight straight games, the Rockies jumped all over opposing starter Mike Foltynewicz for eight runs in 3 1/3 innings and beat the Braves, 17-2. Every Rockies' starting position player scored, Trevor Story homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs, DJ LeMahieu tallied four hits and four runs, and Gerardo Parra and Mark Reynolds each had four RBIs.
While spending Spring Training with the Rockies this year, veteran reliever Jason Motte arranged for some cancer patients from the Colorado Children's Hospital to spend some time with him and his teammates. Now a member of the Braves, Motte invited some of those children to Coors Field on Monday night to watch Rockies right-hander Chad Bettis make his first start since being diagnosed with testicular cancer in December.
The Rockies and Braves played a close game Tuesday night at Coors Field, but an uncommon sight was the difference -- a Nolan Arenado error.
As Dansby Swanson continues to reacquaint himself with the Major Leagues and make the adjustments necessary to prove he can be successful at the highest level, he draws upon the mental strength he receives through his daily practice of writing positive thoughts and reading motivational books.
Unpredictable seems to be an appropriate term to describe Julio Teheran's inconsistent season. So, maybe it shouldn't be surprising to learn after shying away from his slider in his first two starts this month, the Braves right-hander relied heavily on this weapon as he produced one of his best starts of the season in Monday night's 3-0 loss to the Rockies at Coors Field.
