ATLANTA (AP) --- Garrett Jones drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single in
the 10th inning, lifting the Miami Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta
Braves on Monday night.
Christian Yelich led off the 10th with a single off Shae Simmons (1-2) and
moved to second on Jordany Valdespin's sacrifice bunt. Following an intentional
walk to Giancarlo Stanton, Simmons walked Casey McGehee to load the bases.
Jones broke a 1-1 tie with his grounder past Simmons into center field.
Bryan Morris (7-0) stranded two runners in a scoreless ninth. Steve Cishek
pitched a perfect 10th inning for his 22nd save.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his 10th homer for Miami in the fifth for a 1-1 tie
that held until the ninth.
