The bats came alive for the Braves once again. Four different Braves had two hits and two had two RBIs apiece as Atlanta used a five-run sixth to take the lead over the Marlins and put them on their way to a 9-2 victory.
Center fielder Jordan Schafer had two doubles and scored a run. Jeff Francoeur had two singles and scored two runs. Omar Infante went 2-3 with a home run, scored a run and had two runs batted in. Marvin Freeman also went 2-3 and scored and batted in a run. Shortstop Brandon Hicks had a home run in his only plate appearance.
Tommy Hanson started for Atlanta and allowed two runs in the first inning, one unearned. He allowed just five hits in 4 2/3 innings, walked two and sruck out two. James Parr turned in a perfect 2 1/3 inning stint, striking out four. Francisely Bueno and Mariano Gomez each had scoreless frames.
The Braves play St. Louis tomorrow and Kenshin Kawakami will make his third start against other clubs.
