MIAMI - Tommy Hanson pitched six innings and the Atlanta Braves won with only two hits Tuesday night when they sent the Florida Marlins to their sixth consecutive loss, 1-0.
Florida's Brad Hand (0-1) went six innings in his major league debut and allowed just one hit - a homer by Alex Gonzalez leading off the fourth.
That was enough against the Marlins, who stranded 10 and went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position. In the first five games of their homestand, they've left 49 men on base while batting .152 with runners in scoring position.
Hanson (7-4) allowed five walks but only two hits. He has shut out Florida in 13 innings over two starts this season.
