MIAMI (AP) - Rookie Jace Peterson hit a grand slam for his first major league home run, and the Atlanta Braves overcame another tape-measure shot by Giancarlo Stanton to remain undefeated this year at Marlins Park by beating Miami 5-3 Saturday.
Major league RBIs leader Stanton hit his third long homer in as many games, a solo shot into the upper deck in center field, where a spectator made a one-handed catch five rows in front of the 502-foot sign.
Stanton homered into the TV camera well in center field Friday, and pulled a drive out of Dodger Stadium on Wednesday. He has five of his team's nine homers at Marlins Park this year, and 11 home runs overall.
Alex Wood (2-2) pitched seven innings to earn his first victory since he won at Miami in the second game of the season. The Braves are 5-0 at Marlins Park and 12-19 everywhere else.
