Campillo, Braves muzzle Marlins

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Rookie Jorge Campillo pitched seven innings of two-hit ball to help lead the Atlanta Braves past the Florida Marlins, 4-0, on Monday night.

Mark Kotsay, Chipper Jones, Mark Teixeira, and Martin Prado each drove in a run for the Braves, who have won five of their last six against the Marlins.

Campillo (5-4) retired the first 12 batters until walking Josh Willingham to start the fifth inning. An out later, Mike Jacobs singled to break up the no-hit bid.

"Everything I threw worked well," Campillo said. "I feel like I had good command all game. I knew this win was very important for us."

Campillo allowed two hits and struck out six while throwing 57 of his 91 pitches for strikes.

"It was Campy's night," Jones said. "He was in complete control of a very good lineup."

"He's a right-handed Jamie Moyer -- that's a good analogy," Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "He kept throwing a changeup and that little fastball that kept running away from right-handed batters."

Kotsay delivered an RBI single with no outs and the bases loaded in the second inning. Marlins starter Chris Volstad escaped the jam with three straight fielder's choice plays, including two at home plate.

"I felt OK. That second inning, I thought worked out of the jam pretty well," Volstad said. "Bases loaded, nobody out, and only giving up one run. I was trying to limit the damage."

The Braves stretched the lead to 3-0 in the fifth when Gregor Blanco walked and scored on Jones' two-out single. Teixeira followed with a double to right-center field to drive in Jones.

Prado pinch-hit for reliever Will Ohman in the ninth and knocked in a run with a double to right .

Volstad (2-1), making his second major league start, pitched six innings and gave up three runs. The 21-year-old righthander allowed six hits, three walks and struck out three. His ERA is 2.16.

"It was crazy," said Volstad of facing Jones, a player he grew up watching. "It was almost surreal to me to think that a guy that I watched growing up the whole time that I'm out there battling against him. It never crossed my mind that one day this could happen, but it did and it was awesome."
