MIAMI -- The game had all the earmarks of low-stakes September baseball, with a small crowd and two spot starters in a matchup of first- and last-place teams. Andrew Heaney Jersey . Bring on Freddy Garcia. The well-travelled 36-year-old right-hander earned his second NL victory since 2007, and his first since he joined the Atlanta Braves last month, pitching six innings to help beat Miami 6-1 Thursday. "Freddy wore the MVP pants today," teammate Freddie Freeman said. "What he did was pretty awesome." Freeman had three hits on his 24th birthday, including his 20th home run. Chris Johnson also had three hits to raise his average to .330. Garcia (1-1) allowed five hits and one run. What was working for him? "Everything," he said with a smile. "Hes a veteran guy," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "He knows how to manoeuvr himself through a major-league lineup -- put a little on it, take a little off and never give you the same look." Garcia made his first start for the NL East leaders in place of rookie left-hander Alex Wood, whose turn was skipped to give him a breather. A two-time AL All-Star, Garcia lowered his ERA since joining the Braves to 1.32 in 13 2-3 innings. He could be valuable in October, when the games become much more important. "Hopefully Ill continue to pitch the way Ive been pitching," he said. "Whatever they need me to do, Im ready for." Three relievers completed a seven-hitter. Jordan Walden, who had been sidelined by a groin injury, pitched a scoreless seventh in his first appearance since Aug. 21. "We wanted to give him an inning and make sure hes OK," Gonzalez said. "Thats a big piece we havent had. That will take a little burden off some of the other guys we have been using a lot." There were no testy encounters less than 24 hours after a bench-clearing confrontation during the Braves victory Wednesday night. The crowd of 15,274 was the Marlins smallest at home since July 1. Theyre last in the NL in attendance. Brian Flynn (0-1), making his second major-league start, walked six and allowed six runs in four innings. "After an emotional night last night, we needed somebody to go out there, really pound the strike zone and put up some zeros," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "And that just didnt happen." Flynn was given the start in place of Nathan Eovaldi, who was scratched because of a stiff back. Eovaldi wont pitch until Monday at the earliest. The Marlins went 2-5 on their homestand. They have the NLs worst record and have lost 27 of their past 38 games. Evan Gattis and Johnson hit consecutive two-run doubles in the third after Flynn walked the bases loaded to start the inning. Freemans two-out, two-run homer in the fourth made it 6-1. Freeman reached the 20-homer milestone for the third year in a row, leaving him 11 seasons behind former teammate Chipper Jones 14-year streak. "We always jab at each other," Freeman said. "Three down, 11 more to go. I guess I can shoot him a text message, and thats another one down. But Ive got a long ways to go." Donovan Solano had a two-out RBI single in the third to score Miamis run. Notes: Marlins LHP Brad Hand will make his first start of the year Friday when the Marlins open an 11-game trip against the Mets. RHP Henderson Alvarez and RHP Jacob Turner will start for Miami in a doubleheader Saturday. ... Atlanta won the season series 13-6. ... In the past three games, the Braves have hit .158 (6 for 38) with runners in scoring position. ... Solano improved his average with runners in scoring position to .371. Rod Carew Jersey . Off-Season Game Plan looks at what the Blue Jackets may do to build upon last seasons success to return to the playoffs again next year. Kole Calhoun Jersey .Y. - His opponent couldnt stop him, and LeBron James didnt quite know what to think when his coach tried. . Hamilton signed offensive linemen Mike Filer, Joel Reinders, Landon Rice and Carson Rockhill.America goes crazy for its college basketball on Thursday with the start of the NCAA Tournament – or March Madness – as it’s called. Beware the Ides of March, a soothsayer once told Julius Caesar, warning of the great leaders death. Ignoring the soothsayer turned out to be a real brute for the great Roman leader… Anyway, the kings of college basketball - Kansas, Michigan State, Virginia, Oregon, North Carolina - had better watch out for the Ides of March - or the giant-killers.But before all that, lets fill you in with what its all about: College basketball reaches its pinnacle every March What is March Madness?Its a 64-team basketball tournament, spread over three weeks. The first round starts this Thursday and ends late on Friday, the second round in Saturday-Sunday, and then the last Sweet 16 is March 24-25, the Elite Eight is Saturday-Sunday March 26-27, and then its Saturdays Final Four is April 2, and the Final on Monday April 4.In other words, if you love your basketball and all the excitement that goes with it, youve picked the right month.How does it work?If youve splurged a lot of betting money on college basketball this season, its pretty likely that you have been lucky to break even this season. Everyone seems to have beaten everybody. Its been like a big Premier League.And that parity has made things really, really fun. The way that the pre-March Madness season works is that theres a 1-25 ranking, with No 1 the best and 25th a mere marker. Frankly, the committee should be ranking 64 teams, but that would take the glamour out of March Madness, plus it would be 25 ranked teams is tradition.In college basketball there are four quadrants (North, South, East, West), where the No 1 team is matched up with a No 16 team, No 2 team matched up with a No 15 team and so on. If youve had an inconsistent regular season, youre going to be ranked lower than if youve had a good season. Its the same reason why, say, Novak Djokovic is always the No 1 seed at Wimbledon and he rarely ever loses.Theres a lot of money spent…The opening four day of March Madness also the busiest day for visitors in Vegas apart from the Super Bowl, and is generally seen as a quasi-national holiday. And with the first day coming on Thursday, which ties in nicely wwith St Patricks Day, expect a lot of luck to be requested! The annual event has become a mainstay in American sports Who are the favourites?Kansas (6/1), Michigan State (13/2), North Carolina (7/1) are your three main favourites, and theres some love for Virginia and Kentucky (both 12/1). Andrelton Simmons Jersey. I happen to think Kansas are a lovely bet at 6/1 for the title, although Michigan State - who wont face Kansas unless its the final - is equally good money for 13/2. Kansas have been in great form since late January and seeing some of their games in the run-in, they are nothing if not impressive.NCAA = NBA future?One of the best things about March Madness is thinking: Will these guys do well in the NBA?Steph Curry, who currently cant do anything wrong in the NBA, was a hero for small school Davidson, taking them to the sweet 16 with a string of incredible performances.Magic Johnson lit up the tourney in 1979 for Michigan State. He was then drafted first by the LA Lakers. He did pretty well after that. Johnson faced off in the final against Indiana State and future Hall of Famer Larry Bird. Stephen Curry #30 of the Davidson Wildcats shone during March Madness Oh, and a guy who played for North Carolina hit the game-winning shot in the 1982 Championship Game. His name was Michael Jordan.We cant wait for the 2016 crop - although well be without almost-certain No 1 pick Ben Simmons from LSU, who isnt making an appearance this year.So let the madness come…The best thing - unless youre a betting man - isnt the domination of the big teams. Its the small schools making history. I still remember where I was watching No 15 Hampton beating No 2 Iowa State in 2001, and No 11 George Mason beating No 1 Connecticut in 2006.I remember No 15 Lehighs upset of the one of college basketballs superpowers - Duke (No 2) in 2012. And No 14 Mercer doing the same to Duke - then ranked No 3 - in 2014. And of course, when everybodys favourite - Kentucky - lost to unfancied Wisconsin in the Final Four last year, we all went a bit mad too.Lets hope for more of the same in 2016!
