MIAMI (AP) - Josh Johnson's bat was just as potent as his
pitching.

Johnson hit a three-run homer in another solid start, lifting
the Florida Marlins to a 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on
Wednesday night.

Johnson's shot with two outs in the fourth off Kenshin Kawakami
(5-8) went well over the center-field wall for only the second home
run of his career. The homer earned him a curtain call from fans
and gave the Marlins their seventh win in the last eight games.

Johnson (10-2) allowed eight hits in six innings before the
bullpen shut out the Braves the rest of the way. Leo Nunez gave up
a triple in the ninth to Kelly Johnson before striking out Nate
McLouth for his eighth save in 11 chances.
