    couldnt be happier. Beachy, making his third start since coming back from major
    elbow surgery, won for the first time in nearly 15 months. As for his team, the
    Braves are surging and have won 14 straight games to seemingly take all the
    suspense out of the NL East race. "It makes pitching a little easier when those
    guys work their tails off and put five (runs) up there for me early," Beachy
    said. "I dont have to be fine. I can go right at guys, and I tip my cap to them.
    Glad theyre on my team." Justin Upton, Chris Johnson and Brian McCann homered
    and Beachy pitched eight strong innings to help Atlanta beat the Miami Marlins
    5-0 Friday night. The Braves are one victory shy of tying their 2000 team for
    the longest winning streak since the franchise relocated to Atlanta in 1966.
    Beachy (1-0) scattered three hits, allowed one walk and struck out six in eight
    innings to win his third start back from elbow ligament replacement surgery on
    June 21, 2012. He made 67 of 99 pitches for strikes. With only 15 losses at
    Turner Field, Atlanta improved its home winning percentage to .722, best in the
    majors. The Braves were eight games ahead of second-place Washington in the NL
    East after losing their last game, July 24 at the New York, but now lead the
    division by 15 1/2 games. "We want to keep getting better every single day we
    come to the park and try to keep our foot on the gas as best we can," Johnson
    said. "We want to be playing good baseball going into the end of the season and
    into the post-season." The Marlins began the game having lost five straight by a
    total of seven runs, but their sixth consecutive loss unraveled early as Atlanta
    took a 4-0 lead in the first on Uptons 22nd homer and Johnsons three-run shot.
    After Johnson hit his eighth homer, Marlins starter Jacob Turner hit Dan Uggla
    in the upper left arm with a pitch, and Uggla yelled at the pitcher and catcher
    Jeff Mathis as he walked up the first base line. Home plate umpire Mike
    Estabrook issued a warning to both dugouts before Turner faced the next batter,
    and the game ended without another incident. "I would never try to throw at
    someones head like that, and I told him," Turner said. "I think it (Ugglas
    reaction) was just one of those in the heat of the moment." McCann led off the
    third with his 17th homer to make it 5-0. Turner (3-4) allowed five hits and
    five runs -- four earned -- with three walks and five strikeouts in five
    innings. Thhe right-hander dropped to 0-7 with a 3.dddddddddddd71 ERA in 11
    career road starts. Beachy, who had gone seven straight starts without a win,
    allowed a leadoff single to Christian Yelich in the first, but retired the next
    11 batters he faced before Logan Morrisons leadoff single in the fifth. The
    right-hander snapped a seven-start winless streak, earning a victory for the
    first time since pitching his first career shutout in a 7-0 victory over Miami
    on May 17, 2012. At the time of his injury one month later, Beachy had a 2.00
    ERA that was tied for the major league lead. "I still have a lot of room for
    improvement with the curveball and especially the slider," Beachy said.
    "Fortunately I was able to command the (fastball and change-up) well enough to
    where I can get by and continue to work on the others and hopefully piece it all
    together, little by little, each start." Miamis third hit was a one-out double
    by pinch-hitter Juan Pierre in the sixth, but Beachy fielded a grounder from the
    next batter, Yelich, and threw Pierre out at third. Johnson, who leads the NL
    with a .338 average, went 1 for 4. Over his last 40 games, the Braves third
    baseman is hitting .367. Upton has six homers and 13 RBIs in his last eight
    games. He loves how Atlanta keeps putting pressure on opposing pitchers. "Hes
    got to make his pitches and knowing the next guy coming up is pretty dangerous,
    too," Upton said. "There are no holes to give that pitcher a break. I think that
    wears of them and allows us to settle in and get good pitches." Dan Jennings
    relieved Lucas to begin the sixth and allowed two hits over the next two
    innings. Scott Downs began the ninth for Atlanta, allowing a leadoff single to
    pinch-hitter Koyie Hill and striking out Yelich before Luis Ayala needed two
    pitches to end it on Jake Marisnicks double-play groundout. Notes: Braves RHP
    Tim Hudson said before the game that he hopes to return from full health from
    ankle surgery and play his 15th season in 2014. The 38-year-old Hudson added
    that he wants to return for a 10th year with Atlanta. ... Rob Brantly, the
    Marlins opening day catcher, was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans earlier in the
    day. Hill had his contract purchased from New Orleans to take Brantlys spot on
    the 25-man roster. Brantly hit .225 with one homer and 18 RBIs in 59 games and
    allowed seven passed balls. ... The Braves announced that OF Jordan Schafer will
    be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday and OF Jose Constanza
    will be optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett. ' ' '
