Whatever it is that’s ailed the Braves offense lately, it hasn’t affected Evan Gattis. And for that, the Braves were thankful again Wednesday.

Two days after Gattis hit a 10th-inning walk-off homer to beat the Marlins in the series opener, the big catcher came off the bench to hit a two-out, two-run picnch-hit double in the eighth inning that lifted the Braves to a 3-1 win in the series finale Wednesday afternoon at Turner Field.

Aaron Harang pitched brilliantly once again, allowing one run, six hits and one walk with a season-high 11 strikeouts in six innings, and Craig Kimbrel eased some concerns about his shoulder by pitching a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts for his sixth save.

Gattis is 12-for-33 (.364) with two doubles, four homers and nine RBIs in his past nine games.

Braves starters have a majors-leading 1.50 ERA and have allowed two earned runs or fewer in 20 of 21 games this season, including one or no earned runs allowed in 10 of the past 11 games.

According to Baseball Reference, Harang is the first pitcher since Pedro Martinez in 1997 to begin a season with five consecutive appearances of six or more innings and one or fewer runs allowed. That included two starts in which the 35-year-old journeyman pitched no-hitters through six and seven innings.

Harang hasn’t needed much help from the bullpen, but he got some Wednesday after the first two batters in the seventh inning reached on a walk and a single. Harang got a standing ovation as he came the field and was replaced by Jordan Walden, who struck out the next three – Adeiny Hechavarria and pinch hitters Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Greg Dobbs – to keep the score tied.
