MIAMI (AP) - Omar Infante hit a two-run triple in the seventh
and Kenshin Kawakami pitched six effective innings to carry the
Atlanta Braves past the Florida Marlins on Monday night, 5-2 in a
matchup between NL wild-card contenders.

Marlins ace Josh Johnson did not allow a hit until the sixth
inning when Matt Diaz lined a 2-2 slider to center field with two
outs.

David Ross, Adam LaRoche, and Yunel Escobar each drove in a run
for the Braves in the opener of a four-game series.

With the win, Atlanta (69-62) moved within three games of
wild-card co-leaders San Francisco (72-59) and Colorado (72-59),
both of which were idle on Monday. Florida (68-63) has lost four of
five to fall four games back.
