MIAMI (AP) -- Garret Anderson's first three RBIs this season helped the Atlanta Braves end a four-game losing streak Wednesday night by beating the Florida Marlins 8-6.
Chipper Jones and Omar Infante drove in two runs apiece, and Derek Lowe (4-1) won his third start in a row despite giving up six runs in five innings.
Florida's Jorge Cantu tied a career high with five RBIs. He doubled twice and hit a three-run homer.
Anderson, acquired in the offseason, came off the disabled list Tuesday after missing 12 games with a strained quadriceps. The longtime Angels star drove in the first run with a groundout in the first inning, hit a two-run single in the second and finished 1 for 4, raising his average to .182.
