It required overcoming deficits of 3-2 and 4-3, and a four-out save from closer Steve Cishek, but the Miami Marlins completed their sweep of the Atlanta Braves Thursday.

The Marlins rallied for two in the seventh and held for their first three-game home sweep of their National League East rivals since June 13-15, 2006. In improving to 10-0 when leading after seven innings, the Marlins also returned to .500 (14-14) for the first time since they were 5-5 on April 10.

With two on and two out in the eighth, manager Mike Redmond summoned Cishek to faced Andrelton Simmons. After a Simmons walk, Cishek struck out pinch-hitter Ramiro Pena on four pitches to quash the threat.

Cishek pitched a perfect ninth for his 58th career save. Three of those have been of more than three outs with the first two coming on July 14 and Aug. 26, 2012.

“I was actually on my way to the bathroom when the phone rang,” Cishek said. “I had to stop in my tracks and get ready real quick.”
