ATLANTA (AP) — Justin Upton, Chris Johnson and Brian McCann homered, Brandon Beachy pitched eight strong innings and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 5-0 Friday night for their 14th straight victory.

The Braves are one victory shy of tying their 2000 team for the longest winning streak since the franchise relocated to Atlanta in 1966.

Beachy (1-0) scattered three hits, allowed one walk and struck out six in eight innings to win his third start back from elbow ligament replacement surgery on June 21, 2012. He made 67 of 99 pitches for strikes.

With only 15 losses at Turner Field, Atlanta improved its home winning percentage to .722, best in the majors.

The Braves were eight games ahead of second-place Washington in the NL East after losing their last game, July 24 at the New York, but now lead the division by 15½ games.
