MIAMI, Fla. - Troy Glaus drove in two of Atlanta's six runs in the seventh inning to lift the Braves past the Florida Marlins, 7-3, on Wednesday night.

Yunel Escobar had two hits in the seventh as the Braves sent 11 men to the plate, recorded five hits - all singles - and drew three walks.

With the Marlins leading 2-1 heading into the pivotal inning, Burke Badenhop (0-5) relieved starter Nate Robertson, who struck out five in six innings, and gave up singles to the first two batters before Nate McLouth sacrificed.

Dan Meyer relieved and walked Eric Hinske to load the bases. Brian Sanches came on and gave up a sacrifice fly to Martin Prado that tied the game. Sanches walked the next two batters and allowed three straight run-scoring singles, including a two-run hit by Glaus. Escobar's second single of the inning gave the Braves a 7-2 lead.

Tommy Hanson (4-3) picked up the win, allowing two runs over six innings. He struck out four and walked five.

Hanley Ramirez lined a fastball over the right-field fence for his eighth home run to give the Marlins a 1-0 lead in the first. Hanson walked the next three batters before striking out Ronnie Paulino.

Hanson settled down after the first and even delivered a sacrifice fly in the fifth that scored Melky Cabrera, who singled, advanced on a passed ball, then moved to third on a deep fly ball.

Astros 5, Brewers 0

MILWAUKEE - Roy Oswalt threw eight dominant innings in his first start since requesting a trade and Houston had 12 hits to beat Milwaukee.

Oswalt handed the Brewers their 12th loss in the last 15 games, scattering four hits, including doubles by Ryan Braun in the first and fourth.

Oswalt (3-6) struck out nine of the final 16 batters and worked out of his only brush with trouble in the fourth. After giving up Braun's hit and walking Prince Fielder, he struck out the side.

Oswalt's 2.35 ERA is one of the lowest in the NL but he also came in with the league's lowest run-support average (2.07).
