MIAMI (AP) - Nick Markakis drove in three runs with three hits and the Atlanta Braves won for the second consecutive night after losing their first nine games, beating Miami 6-4 on Saturday.
    
The Braves came to Miami mired in their worst start since 1988, but they're now 27-12 at Marlins Park and will try for a three-game sweep Sunday.
    
Miami fell to 0-4 at home under first-year manager Don Mattingly.
    
Markakis put the Braves ahead to stay in the fourth when he drove in a run with his eighth double, most in the majors. He led off the game with a single and hit a two-out, two-run single in the second.
    
Adeiny Hechavarria and Justin Bour each hit his first homer off Bud Norris (1-2), who allowed four runs in 5 1/3 innings.
    
Tom Koehler (0-2) lasted only 3 2/3 innings and allowed nine hits and six runs.
