ATLANTA (AP) -- Chipper Jones hit a three-run homer and Greg
Norton came through with a two-run double in the eighth inning that
gave the Atlanta Braves another come-from-behind victory, 5-4 over
the slumping Florida Marlins on Tuesday night.

The Braves actually won a one-run game, improving their mark in
those contests to 3-16, despite two more homers by Florida's
slugging second baseman, Dan Uggla.

Atlanta beat the Marlins in its final at-bat for the second
night in a row. Jones, who actually managed to raise an average
that already was over .400, sparked the Braves in the eighth with a
leadoff single against Matt Lindstrom (1-1). Mark Teixeira followed
with a double into the left-field corner, putting runners at second
and third.
