ATLANTA (AP) - Nathan Eovaldi combined with Steve Cishek on an eight-hit shutout, Jeff Mathis homered and drove in three runs, and the Miami Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves 7-0 on Sunday to end their 6-game losing streak.

Ed Lucas had a two-run single and Mathis added a two-run double in the Marlins' five-run third inning.

Eovaldi (3-5) halted Miami's skid and his personal 5-game slide by earning his first win since July 12 against Washington. He gave up seven hits with two walks and six strikeouts in eight innings, his longest start of the season.

After throwing 102 pitches through eight innings, Eovaldi was not given the chance for his first career complete game. Cishek got the final three outs.
