Justin Upton leads Braves past Marlins 6-4

July 10th, 2013 - By Steve James

- Justin Upton homered, doubled twice and

scored three runs to help the Atlanta Braves earn their 27th

comeback victory when they beat the Miami Marlins 6-4 Tuesday

night.

The Braves overcame deficits of 3-1 and 4-3. They

lead the NL in come-from-behind wins.

Pitchers for the two teams combined to retire 30

consecutive batters Monday, when Atlanta won 7-1 in 14 innings. The

second game of the series was a slugfest by comparison, with Upton

leading the way.

He doubled home a run in the third, doubled and

scored to make it 4-all in the fifth, then hit his 16th home run -

but first since June 12 – leading off the seventh against reliever

Ryan Webb.

In Monday’s marathon, Upton hit a two-run double to

put Atlanta ahead in the final inning.
