MIAMI (AP) -- Julio Teheran pitched 7 1-3 innings and scored the tying run in the seventh on Friday to help the Atlanta Braves move a game ahead of Miami atop the NL East by beating the Marlins 3-2.

The Braves trailed 2-0 in the sixth inning but rallied to break a four-game losing streak. They won for only the third time in their past 13 road games.

Teheran (5-3) allowed five hits and two runs, which raised his ERA to 1.83. Teheran, who came into the game 2 for 25 this season, had a single and a double.

The right-hander improved to 4-0 in six career starts against the Marlins with an ERA of 2.50.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his NL-leading 16th home run in the first inning to put the Marlins up 2-0.
