Braves slip by Marlins on Upton's hit in extras

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - B.J. Upton singled home pinch-runner Paul Janish with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins at Turner Field.

For the third consecutive inning, Atlanta put two men on base. Chris Johnson hit a one-out single off Ryan Webb (1-5) in the 11th, and after Dan Uggla drew a two-out walk, Upton sent the NL East-leading Braves to their sixth straight victory with a base hit to center field.

Upton, along with Johnson, finished with four hits, including a two-run homer.

Mike Minor started for the Braves and allowed four runs on five hits over seven frames. Luis Ayala (1-1) earned the win after getting Ed Lucas to ground into an inning-ending double play in the top of the 11th.

Justin Ruggiano clubbed a two-run homer and Giancarlo Stanton added a solo shot for Miami, which has dropped six in a row. Marlins starter Jacob Turner gave up three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings.
