Braves rally for six runs in the ninth to defeat Marlins

May 21 2018 5:21 AM

The Atlanta Braves rallied with a six-run ninth inning for an improbable win over the Miami Marlins in MLB on Sunday.

Miami scored six runs in the fourth and led 9-4 heading into the bottom of the ninth. But, the Braves rallied for six in the final frame to secure an improbable 10-9 victory.

Ronald Acuna Jr. drove in the first run of the ninth with a sacrifice fly and the Braves scored on an error one batter later. Nick Markakis and Kurt Suzuki followed with RBI singles before Dansby Swanson delivered a two-run, walk-off single.

"Every win is a good win," Swanson said following the game. "This one just happened to be a walk-off."

Acuna finished the game with three RBIs while Markakis and Swanson each drove in a pair. Miguel Rojas and Lewis Brinson tallied four RBIs apiece for Miami.

The Braves move to 28-17 this year with the win while the Marlins fall to 17-29.


Noah Syndergaard allowed one run and struck out seven in seven innings on the mound to help the Mets win 4-1 Sunday and complete a three-game sweep of the Diamondbacks.

Yankees first baseman Tyler Austin belted a pair of home runs and tallied four RBIs in New York’s 10-1 win over the Royals.  


Marlins reliever Brad Ziegler surrendered four runs in 0.2 innings, igniting the Braves' ninth-inning comeback.

Nationals outfielders Matt Adams and Michael Taylor combined to go 0 for eight with four strikeouts as the Dodgers topped Washington for a third straight time.



Cubs infielder Javy Baez sent a second-inning pitch from Reds starter Tyler Mahle well over the left-field fence for a solo home run.
