J. Upton homers again as Braves top MarlinsAnd now Justin Upton and the Braves head to Miami for the Marlins' home opener. OK, six games into his Atlanta Braves career, and Upton has five home runs. Justin Upton is hitting enough for an entire team. Upton singled in the first, doubled in the fourth and homered in the sixth. The Braves earned their fourth consecutive victory and improved to 6-1, their best start since 2007. A handful of spectators wore homemade T-shirts disparaging him, a few others had bags over their heads, and many wore jerseys of Marlins traded in the past year, including Hanley Ramirez Jose Reyes and Josh Johnson Some fans pledged to stay away this season because they're angry that owner Jeffrey Loria reverted to a frugal payroll only a year after the team opened a new ballpark built mostly with taxpayer money.
