It was the first regular-season game - in any sport - held at an active military installation.

J.T. Realmuto homered and drove in two runs, Adam Conley pitched six strong innings and the Miami Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves 5-2 Sunday night in a game played in a specially-built stadium at Fort Bragg.

Christian Yelich also finished with two RBIs. He and Realmuto had run-scoring singles during a two-run fifth.

Martin Prado added an RBI single in the seventh to help the wild card-contending Marlins earn a split of the four-game series and win the first regular-season game - in any sport - held at an active military installation.

Conley (5-5) allowed four hits in the Marlins' best outing by a starter in a week. In Miami's previous five games, each starter allowed at least four earned runs and none finished the sixth.

Matt Wisler (3-8) had six strikeouts for the Braves, giving him 15 in his last two starts, but he allowed three earned runs in six-plus innings.
