Braves´ ninth-inning rally topples Diamondbacks

September 10 2018 5:49 AM

The Atlanta Braves scored six runs in the ninth inning to rally past the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-5 to take a 4.5-game lead in the National League (NL) East.

Down 4-3 entering the final inning, Atlanta cruised in front starting with an RBI single by Freddie Freeman. Johan Camargo, Lucas Duda and Ender Inciarte then added home runs to give the Braves a comfortable advantage.

Rookie sensation Ronald Acuna Jr. led the Braves with two hits, three runs scored, a home run (25), two RBIs and two walks. He is now batting .293 this season and has run away with leadoff duties.

Robbie Ray started for Arizona, allowing just two runs with six strikeouts in six innings. But his lead did not hold with the bullpen imploding. The Diamondbacks only had six hits on the night, but a four-run sixth inning gave them the lead.

The win helped the Braves (79-64) increase their lead over the struggling Phillies. The Diamondbacks (76-67) fell 2.5 games behind the Rockies in the NL West.

 

TURNER LEADS DODGERS

Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner went four for five with two runs scored, two doubles, a home run and two RBIs in a 9-6 win against the Rockies. The win helped Los Angeles move to within a half game of Colorado for the NL West lead.

RAMIREZ GOES HITLESS

Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez is having an MVP-calibre season, but he went 0 for four with a strikeout in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays. Ramirez has just six hits in his last 10 games.

 

MARTINEZ HOMERS AGAIN

J.D. Martinez hit his 40th home run of the season.

BREWERS AT CUBS

The Brewers will go with Wade Miley (3-2, 2.12 ERA).
