ATLANTA (AP) -Buddy Carlyle pitched one-hit ball over seven innings for his first win since 1999 and Atlanta beat Florida 3-1 on Tuesday in the first game of a doubleheader.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Chris Woodward hit back-to-back homers for the Braves.
Aaron Boone had the lone hit off Carlyle, a third-inning homer that stood up until the seventh. Saltalamacchia hit a two-run homer off Renyel Pinto (0-3) that put the Braves ahead, and Woodward followed with a pinch-hit homer.
Rafael Soriano pitched a scoreless eighth and Bob Wickman earned his 10th save despite giving up Florida's other hit.
Carlyle was 21 when he earned his first win with San Diego. The Braves are his seventh organization and he spent two years in Japan. He signed with the Braves as a minor league free agent during the winter and started the season at Triple-A Richmond. When the Braves' rotation was hit by injuries, the right-hander was called up to fill the void.
