It was also the first game and win for Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez against the Braves, where he was the third-base coach the previous four seasons.
Willis (3-0) is 12-1 with a .923 winning percentage in April. That's the second-best career percentage in April to the 13-1, .929 of Babe Ruth, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

The Marlins added two more in the third on Borchard's two-run single, ending the night for Redman, who allowed six hits and seven earned runs in 2 2-3 innings.
Atlanta's Chad Paronto left with a strained muscle in the seventh inning, limping off the mound after throwing a third strike past Ross.

In his first start, an 11-1 loss to the Mets, Redman pitched 5 2-3 innings, giving up nine hits and five earned runs. ...
