Recap: Miami vs. Atlanta

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Placido Polanco went 3-for-5 with three RBI and Jacob Turner spun seven strong innings to lead the Miami Marlins to a 6-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.

Turner (3-1) allowed two runs on four hits and three walks while fanning five to earn the win.

Giancarlo Stanton had a two-run double and Jeff Mathis drove in a run for the Marlins, who snapped a five-game losing streak.

"It's good, especially going into an off day," Stanton said of Miami snapping its five-game skid. "You don't want to go six in a row into your day off and then you're wondering and all that stuff on that day."

Chris Johnson went 2-for-4 with an RBI and Dan Uggla drove in a run for the Braves, who lost for the second time in five games.

Paul Maholm (9-8) was tagged for four runs on seven hits and five walks over 4 1/3 innings to absorb the loss.

The Marlins put two on with no outs in the first inning. Stanton then ripped a line drive double off the wall in left-center field to score Justin Ruggiano and Ed Lucas. After Marcell Ozuna struck out, Polanco doubled to left field to push Stanton across. Mathis capped the inning with a bloop single to right to plate Polanco.

"Obviously in the first inning I wasn't in rhythm," Maholm admitted. "The first inning was what it was. I was fighting it and they capitalized."

Atlanta answered back with a run in the second inning. Johnson doubled then scored on Uggla's two-bagger to right field.

The Braves pushed a run across in the sixth to make it 4-2. Freddie Freeman doubled, moved to third on a wild pitch then scored on Johnson's ground out to first base.

The Marlins added a pair of insurance runs in the eighth inning. With the bases loaded and two outs, Polanco smacked a single to center field to score Juan Pierre and Lucas.

Steve Cishek stranded a pair of runners in the ninth to nail down the win.
