Dickey, Markakis help Braves overcome Stanton, Marlins 5-3

ATLANTA — R.A. Dickey is glad he doesn't have to face Giancarlo Stanton too often.

Dickey won for the first time in seven starts, Nick Markakis hit a three-run homer and the Atlanta Braves overcame Stanton's two home runs to beat the Miami Marlins 5-3 on Friday night.

"I had done a pretty good job of keeping him in the yard for about six years, so he was probably due," Dickey said. "He's good. He's a specimen. I thought I had a pretty good knuckleball otherwise."
