Just a single, baby, just a single

Braves storm back on 6-run 9th for walkoff win over Marlins; 5 singles, 2 BBs, 1 Sac, 1 WP, 1 E and 3 SBs produce thrilling 10-9 Atlanta victory on Sunday deep in the heart of Dixie

 
This was the kind of game that ruins your scorecard. In the top of the 9th Sunday in Atlanta, Miami 1B Miguel Rojas homered off Braves LHP AJ Minter to make it 8-4. But then came the bottom of the 9th: PH Flaherty walked. Albies singled. Acuna hit a Sac fly to drive in Flaherty, and then Freddy Freeman, Nick Markakis, and Kurt Suzuki each singled to bring the score to 9-8. Finally Dansby Swanson singled sharply over the 3rd base bag off Marlins RHP Tayron Guerrero (above) to drive home two to win it. And get this: the rally came 8 years to the day after the Bravesí 10-9 walkoff win over the Reds on a Brooks Conrad 9th-inning grand slam, May 21, 2010. (Photo: from ESPN video)
