ATLANTA (AP) - Gordon Beckham hit a three-run homer, Nick Markakis drove in two runs and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 7-2 on Saturday to secure their first home series win of the season.
    
The Braves improved to a still-dismal 4-20 at Turner Field by winning the first two games of the three-game series. Atlanta rallied from a 2-0 deficit for the second straight day.
    
The Braves are 5-0 against the Marlins and 9-34 against all other teams. Atlanta swept a three-game series at Miami on April 15-17.
    
Atlanta took the lead by scoring three runs in the sixth off Jose Urena (1-1). Beckham hit his homer off Edwin Jackson after Jackson walked two batters in the seventh.
    
Eric O'Flaherty (1-3) recorded two outs after rookie Aaron Blair, recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett before the game, allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings.
