Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler turned in a quality start Friday against the Braves.

Koehler allowed two runs on four hits over six innings. He struck out six and walked three during the outing. Koehler was exceptional early, tossing five scoreless innings to open the game. He made two mistakes in the sixth inning, and they wound up costing him. Koehler walked Freddie Freeman to open the inning, and then gave up a two-run blast to Justin Upton. He struck out the next three hitters to get out of the inning. 

The Marlins managed to come back in the following inning, giving Koehler a no-decision. He’ll take on the Mets in his next start.
