ATLANTA (AP) _ Gary Sheffield, Chipper Jones and Andruw Jones hit consecutive home runs in the sixth inning Monday, leading the Atlanta Braves over the Florida Marlins 3-0.

Russ Ortiz (1-1) won his first game for Atlanta, combining with three relievers on a five-hitter. Ortiz, obtained during the offseason from San Francisco, allowed three hits, struck out three and walked three, throwing just 49 of 90 pitches for strikes.

He threw 25 pitches in the second inning, loading the bases with two outs on a bloop single and two walks. He escaped the jam when Carl Pavano (0-2) grounded a 3-1 pitch to first. The ball bounced off the glove of Robert Fick to second baseman Marcus Giles, who threw him out.

Florida loaded the bases in the eighth off Roberto Hernandez, and Kevin Gryboski got Ivan Rodriguez to ground into a double play.

John Smoltz allowed a two-out double to Juan Encarnacion in the ninth, then struck out Todd Hollandsworth on three pitches.

Atlanta won three of four games from the Marlins after getting swept by Montreal in its opening series. It was the first shutout of the season for the Braves, who tied Los Angeles for the NL high last season with 15.

Pavano allowed three runs and five hits in six innings, struck out five and walked nine.

He took a two-hit shutout into the sixth, then allowed Sheffield's second home run in two days, a 450-foot drive into the left-field stands.

Chipper Jones followed with his first home run of the season, and Andruw Jones hit an opposite-field shot to left on an 0-2 pitch.

Notes: The start of the game was delayed 11 minutes by rain. ... The Braves hadn't hit three straight homers since last June 11, when Andruw Jones, Vinny Castilla and Matt Franco did it at Minnesota.
