KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Chone Figgins was 4 for 4, Wade LeBlanc pitched four scoreless innings and the Miami Marlins defeated the Atlanta Braves 10-2 Sunday.

LeBlanc gave up five hits and walked none as he ran his spring training scoreless streak to nine innings. The left-hander, who threw 28 of his 42 pitches for strikes, is competing with John Maine and Kevin Slowey for the final spot in the Miami rotation.

Braves starter Tim Hudson labored through five innings, throwing 97 pitches and allowing six runs, nine hits, two hit batters and one walk.

Marcell Ozuna hit a three-run homer in the first inning and fellow outfield prospect Christian Yelich had a two-run drive in the seventh.

Justin Upton was 3 for 3 for the Braves and is hitting .382 (13 for 34).
