MIAMI (AP) - Anibal Sanchez allowed two runs and five hits while
pitching into the seventh inning, Cody Ross hit a two-run double in
the eighth and the Florida Marlins extended Kenshin Kawakami's
season of woe by beating the Atlanta Braves 6-4 on Tuesday night.
Sanchez (4-2) has won three straight starts for the first time
since September 2006, a stretch four years ago that included his
no-hitter against Arizona.
Cameron Maybin homered in the third inning and Florida tacked on
three runs in the eighth.
Brian McCann hit a two-run double and Martin Prado had three
hits for the Braves, who again struggled to give Kawakami (0-7) run
support. Jason Heyward hit a two-run single in the ninth off Leo
Nunez, drawing Atlanta within two.
