MIAMI (AP) Don Mattingly went out as a winner in his final game as Miami's manager when rookie Peyton Burdick homered and drove in four runs to lead the Marlins over the NL East champion Atlanta Braves 12-9 on Wednesday.
Matt Olson hit his 34th homer and Marcell Ozuna hit his 23rd for the Braves, who finished 101-61 and have a bye into the Division Series next week. The defending World Series champions won the season series against Miami 13-6.
The 61-year-old Mattingly announced Sept. 25 he would not seek a new contract. Miami's final 69-93 record, fourth in the NL East, surpassed its 2021 finish by two games.
