Jace Peterson Rallies Braves For Their Sixth Straight Win
MIAMI (AP) – Jace Peterson hit a game-tying two-run home run in the eighth inning and a go-ahead RBI single in the 10th to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night.
Chris Withrow (2-0) got five outs to earn the win and Arodys Vizcaino picked up his eighth save in 10 chances for the Braves, who have won six straight.
David Phelps surrendered the home run to Peterson and Kyle Barraclough (3-2) took the loss for the Marlins, who spoiled an impressive start by Jose Fernandez.
Fernandez left with a 2-0 lead after allowing one hit through seven innings. He struck out seven and walked two. Fernandez drove in a run.
Ichiro Suzuki had two hits for the Marlins to give him 2,982 in his career.
