Tyler Moore hits 3-run PH homer as Marlins beat Braves 3-1

MIAMI (AP) - Pinch hitter Tyler Moore hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to spoil a shutout bid by R.A. Dickey, and the Miami Marlins broke a five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.
 
It was Moore's first homer of the year, and the fourth pinch-hit shot of his career.
 
Miami left-hander Justin Nicolino, recalled from Triple-A New Orleans before the game, allowed one run in six innings in his first appearance of the season. The Braves went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position against him.
