It's just one win, but rookie Josh Johnson is ready to set a pattern. Johnson allowed only one unearned run in six innings, and the Florida Marlins totaled 17 hits to end their streak of 11 consecutive home losses by beating the visiting Atlanta Braves, 11-3, last night. "Let's go on a winning streak," Johnson said. "That's what we're here for - to win. " Miguel Cabrera led the Marlins' offense by going 4-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, two RBI and four runs scored. Joe Borchard homered and had a career-high four RBI, and Mike Jacobs also homered for Florida.

Ken Griffey Jr. is letting his performance do the talking for him for a while. Griffey hit his second three-run homer in as many games and made his third spectacular catch in the same span to lead the host Cincinnati Reds to a 7-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers last night. The centerfielder has hit four home runs and driven in 18 runs since being activated from the disabled list on May 11, after missing almost a month with a strained tendon in his right knee. "Any questions about Ken Griffey Jr. can be put to rest," Reds manager Jerry Narron said.

Florida Marlins first baseman Mike Jacobs agrees with Jimmy Rollins. "The Phillies are the team to beat," he said, sizing up the National League East one recent day. "They've got a nice starting rotation, and they can slug it. The Mets will swing the bats, but I don't think they have the pitching depth. The Braves are solid as usual. But the Phillies have the pitching and the lineup. " Despite his praise for the Phillies, Jacobs wouldn't count out his own team. And he shouldn't.

The Pittsburgh Pirates tied a good club record, while the Florida Marlins would rather have not tied one of their own. The host Pirates used four sacrifice flies and took advantage of five Marlins errors in a sloppily played 7-2 win last night. Ronny Paulino had three RBI and Shawn Chacon pitched five shutout innings out of the bullpen for the Pirates, who earned a split of the four-game series. The Pirates, who committed two errors, tied a club record set Sept. 9, 1988, against the Phillies with four sacrifice flies.

Scott Olsen got his first win in nine starts, and Jorge Cantu hit a record-setting home run last night as Florida beat visiting Washington, 2-1. Cantu's solo homer that tied the score at 1-1 in the fourth inning was his 25th of the season. The Marlins are the first team in major league history to have four infielders hit at least 25: first baseman Mike Jacobs (32), second baseman Dan Uggla (30), shortstop Hanley Ramirez (29) and third baseman Cantu have accounted for 116 of the Marlins' 188 homers this season.

Brett Myers had a chance to pitch like a top-of-the-rotation starter last night at Dolphin Stadium. He had looked more like one recently, and perhaps had started to fulfill the Phillies' expectations that he and Cole Hamels would form a dominant 1-2 punch atop their rotation. Myers had a 3.62 ERA in his last four starts and a 2.35 ERA in his last two, but he took a step backward when he allowed five runs and three home runs in just 5 1/3 innings in a 5-4 loss to the Florida Marlins.

At 6-7, Josh Johnson glares down at home plate, an imposing figure with an intimidating repertoire of pitches. "You barely know he's in the clubhouse," teammate Luis Gonzalez said, "but when he takes the mound he has presence. " The big righthander stifled the New York Mets for a season-high seven innings yesterday, leading the visiting Florida Marlins to an 8-2 win and helping them avoid a three-game sweep by their NL East rivals. The Mets trail the first-place Phillies by two games.

Scott Olsen allowed two hits in 8 2/3 innings, and Mike Jacobs hit a two-run homer to help the Florida Marlins beat the slumping Milwaukee Brewers 3-0 last night. Ryan Braun doubled in the fourth and Prince Fielder singled with two outs in the ninth for visiting Milwaukee's only hits. Olsen (4-1) came within a strike of his first complete game and the Marlins' first since Sept. 16, 2006, but he walked pinch-hitter Joe Dillon to load the bases with two outs in the ninth. Kevin Gregg needed only one pitch to retire Bill Hall on a flyout for his sixth save in seven chances.

The cost-cutting Florida Marlins finalized their big trade with the Mets yesterday, sending slugger Carlos Delgado to New York for first baseman Mike Jacobs and two minor leaguers. Just hours later, the Marlins completed the other big deal they struck this week by shipping ace Josh Beckett, third baseman Mike Lowell and reliever Guillermo Mota to the Boston Red Sox for four prospects. The Mets will also receive $7 million from the Marlins to help cover the $48 million Delgado is owed over the next three seasons.

  JUPITER, Fla. - No big-league team has a can't-tell-the-players-without-a-scorecard history quite like the Florida Marlins. They've built world championship clubs, then torn them apart. Twice. Plenty of big-name stars have worn the teal-and-black. Most have just been passing through town. The Fish are on an upswing again, surprising most observers by staying in contention much of last season and ending up with 84 wins, just 7 1/2 games behind the eventual world champion Phillies.

Brewers slugger Prince Fielder owes more than $400,000 in unpaid taxes, according to a published report. Fielder declined to comment on the report through a team spokesman before last night's game against Toronto. An Internal Revenue Service spokesman told the Associated Press that Fielder could have made payments or even paid it off, but that it might not be recorded yet. The Detroit News' Tax Watchdog blog published Tuesday a copy of the IRS' Notice of Federal Tax Lien filed against Fielder on Oct. 6, 2005.

The Florida Marlins obviously didn't get the memo. They weren't supposed to contend in the National League East this season. This tidbit might as well have been included on the news release when they traded slugger Miguel Cabrera and pitcher Dontrelle Willis to Detroit for prospects during the winter meetings. The Marlins are rebuilding. Check back in a year or two. Thank you for your concern. The Marlins' best days might still be ahead of them, but two months into the new season they sit atop the NL East as they come to Philadelphia to begin a three-game series with the second-place Phillies tonight.

Baseball is a game of numbers. Here are two that had sent shivers down the Phillies' collective spines: 5-0. As in a 5-0 lead Sept. 2 in Florida. Lost lead, lost game. Then a 5-0 lead Wednesday in Atlanta. Lost lead, lost game. Yesterday, the Phils led, 5-0, against the hapless Marlins again. This time, after scoring two more runs in the second and another in the fourth, they sweated out an 8-5 victory that moved them to within two games of NL wild-card leader San Diego.
