Recap: Miami vs. Atlanta

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Martin Prado went 4-for-4 with two RBI and Dan Uggla added a three-run homer, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 7-5 triumph over the Miami Marlins on Monday.

Jeff Baker had an RBI base hit and Jason Heyward scored a pair of runs for the Braves, who have won four straight on the heels of a three-game skid.

Tim Hudson (15-6) allowed four runs on 10 hits over five innings to earn the win. Craig Kimbrel stranded a runner in the ninth to earn his NL-best 37th save of the year.

The Braves, who lead the NL wild-card race, now trail the East-leading Washington Nationals by five games.

Gorkys Hernandez went 3-for-5, falling a homer shy of the cycle, and Bryan Petersen knocked in a pair with a fourth-inning triple for the Marlins, who have dropped five of seven.

Wade LeBlanc (2-5) was tagged for six runs on seven hits over four innings to absorb the loss.

The Braves wasted no time and put up four runs in the first inning. With runners on the corners, Prado delivered a single to right-center field to score Heyward. Uggla followed with a home run over the left-field wall.

"I tried to go away and I left it middle," LeBlanc said of his home-run ball to Uggla. "I made a mistake and he made me pay for it."

Atlanta padded its cushion with a pair in the fourth to go up 6-0. Uggla walked and David Ross singled to put runners at first and second. Baker followed with an RBI single to right-center field to plate Uggla and Ross came across on Hudson's groundout.

But the Marlins countered with four of their own in the home half. Rob Brantly singled to score Justin Ruggiano before Peterson's triple plated a pair. Hernandez followed with a triple of his own to score Petersen.

"We let them back in the game a little bit," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

Miami was able to cut its deficit to 6-5 in the seventh when Jose Reyes scored on Carlos Lee's base hit.

The Braves added one in the eighth when Heyward scored on Prado's single to center field.

Game Notes

Prado has 55 multi-hit games this season ... Uggla has 42 two-out RBI this season ... Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was scratched from the lineup with soreness in his left side and is considered day-to-day ... LeBlanc's last win came Aug. 17. He is 0-2 over his last six starts.
