Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Kris Medlen is back in the win column and will try to embark on another long winning streak for the Atlanta Braves.

Medlen tossed eight strong innings of one-run ball in the Braves' 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins in the middle test of a three-game set.

Medlen surrendered an unearned run on three hits and three walks for the Braves, who have won five in a row and are off to their best start since 2007.

Atlanta had won 23 consecutive Medlen starts during the regular season until he yielded two runs on six hits and four walks over five frames in the Braves' 2-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday.

Evan Gattis smacked a two-run homer and Justin Upton added an RBI double in the victory.

Wade LeBlanc allowed two runs on six hits and a walk over six frames for Miami, which has dropped 16 of its last 19 contests against Atlanta.
