Adeiny Hechavarria celebrated his 26th birthday by going 3-for-3 with a home run, three runs batted in and two runs scored to lead the Miami Marlins over the Atlanta Braves, 6-2, in the rubber match of three-game set at Turner Field on Wednesday.
Dan Haren (1-0) started for Miami and got his first win, allowing two runs on three hits over seven innings. The right-hander struck out five and walked two, as the Marlins won their first series of the young campaign.
Miami was swept in three games by the Braves to begin the year then dropped two of three to the Rays before embarking on their current 10-day road trip.
Gordon started the scoring in the third inning, coming through with a two-run double off Atlanta starter Eric Stults.
Hechavarria added his two-run homer off Stults in the fifth inning, while Morse hit his solo shot in the sixth off reliever Cody Martin.
The Braves got a run back in the sixth when Maybin connected on his second home run of the season. Johnson added his first homer an inning later.
Hechavarria added a RBI sac fly in the ninth to cap the scoring.
Stults (0-1) was hit with the loss, surrendering four runs on five hits over five innings.
Despite the loss, the outing was a win of sorts for Stults, who held Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton hitless in two at-bats. Stanton blasted a 484-foot homer off Stults last April.
Stanton finished the contest 0-for-4 after going 3-for-3 with a double, four RBI, two runs scored, two walks and a stolen base in Tuesday's 8-2 win.
