(AP) Freddy Garcia earned his second NL victory since 2007, and his first since joining the Atlanta Braves last month, pitching six innings to help beat Miami 6-1 Thursday.


Freddie Freeman had three hits on his 24th birthday, including his 20th home run. Chris Johnson also had three hits to raise his average to .330.


Garcia (1-1) allowed five hits and one run. He was making a spot start in place of rookie left-hander Alex Wood, whose turn was skipped to give him a breather.


Three relievers completed a seven-hitter. Jordan Walden, who had been sidelined by a groin injury, pitched a scoreless seventh in his first appearance since Aug. 21.


There were no testy encounters less than 24 hours after a bench-clearing confrontation during the Braves' victory Wednesday night.
