ATLANTA - Tommy Hanson pitched four-hit ball over seven innings for his first win, Jason Heyward and Brian McCann homered, and Chipper Jones drove in two runs to lead the Atlanta Braves past the Florida Marlins 5-0 Tuesday night.
Hanson (1-2) finally got a few runs to work with and the Braves turned in several nifty defensive plays, two of them diving stops by shortstop Alex Gonzalez.
The Braves have struggled offensively over their first 10 games, scoring three runs or fewer seven times - including both of Hanson's starts. This time, that wasn't a problem. Heyward homered in the fourth, McCann in the fifth.
Chris Volstad (0-1) took the loss. He was knocked out in the fifth, having allowed eight hits and all five runs.
