ATLANTA (AP)

Dan Uggla drove in three runs for the second straight game and the Florida Marlins continued their strong start, beating the Atlanta Braves 10-4 on Wednesday night. At 7-1, Florida has its best start since opening 1997 with eight wins in the first nine games. The Marlins snapped a 4-4 tie in the seventh on Peter Moylan's bases-loaded walk to pinch-hitter Russ Gload. Moylan (0-1) gave up a leadoff single to Jorge Cantu, who scored the go-ahead run on Gload's walk. Four Florida relievers allowed only two hits and no runs in 4 1-3 innings. Hayden Penn (1-0) retired all four batters he faced for his first win since Sept. 1, 2005 for Baltimore at Toronto. Uggla had two hits, including a two-run double in Florida's three-run fifth. The Marlins padded the lead with five runs in the ninth off Blaine Boyer and Jorge Campillo. Cody Ross, pinch-hitter Wes Helms and Hanley Ramirez had run-scoring singles and John Baker added a two-run hit. Boyer gave up four runs on two hits, a walk and a hit batter in the ninth and has a 40.50 ERA. Florida had four straight hits off Lowe in the fifth. With one out, Baker singled to center and moved to third on Ramirez's double. Cantu drove in Baker with a single to left, and Uggla followed with his two-run double over the first-base bag. The Braves tied the game with three runs in the fifth off Andrew Miller. Casey Kotchman had a run-scoring triple and scored on Omar Infante's single. Uggla gave Florida a 1-0 lead with a first-inning single that drove in Emilio Bonifacio. Kelly Johnson had a first-inning triple and scored on Infante's sacrifice fly. Lowe threw 106 pitches in five innings, giving up seven hits and four runs with five walks and five strikeouts.
