Adonis Garcia hit his fourth homer Thursday as the Braves edged the Marlins 9-8 on Thursday.

Garcia hit three homers in 331 at-bats in Triple-A. He has four in just 50 at-bats in the majors. Still, his average stands at .220 and he's drawn just two walks in his 14 games. Hector Olivera figures to be an upgrade at third base for the Braves once he's healthy.

He finished 2-for-6 on the night with a double along with the homer. In 11 games in the majors this season, he has nine hits in 40 plate appearances. Six of those nine hits are extra-base hits (three doubles, three homers).
