ATLANTA (AP) - Cody Ross drove in four runs to snap an early
slump, and the Florida Marlins beat the Braves 6-2 on Thursday to
complete their first three-game sweep in Atlanta.
Ross had three hits, including a three-run homer. He drove in another run with a sacrifice fly after beginning the day with a .115 batting average and only one RBI.
Anibal Sanchez (1-0) gave up eight hits and two runs in six innings to give Kenshin Kawakami (1-1) his first loss. Kawakami allowed five hits and five runs, four earned, in six innings.
Florida (8-1) is off to its best start since opening the 1997 season with eight wins in the first nine games.
The Marlins had never swept a three-game or four-game series in Atlanta before outscoring the Braves 21-7 the past three games.
