How the game was won: A crazy bottom of the seventh, that’s how.
With the Braves trailing 3-2, Todd Cunningham hit a one-out infield single and advanced to second on shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria’s airmail throw. Hechvarria then bobbled Pedro Ciriaco’s grounder to put runners on the corners with one out.
After Jace Peterson walked, Daniel Castro hit a dribbler to third baseman Martin Prado who fired home to get Cunningham on the force out.
Replays showed catcher Jeff Mathis never touched home plate with his foot and didn’t tag Cunningham. The out call was reversed after review and Atlanta tied the game.
The next batter, Nick Markakis, put Atlanta up 5-3 with a two-RBI single.
Julio Teheran pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out three.
Number: 100. The number of wins Atlanta has against the Marlins at Turner Field since it opened in 1997. The Braves have only topped the Mets more times at Turner Field (103).
What’s next: Mike Foltynewicz (3-3, 5.40 ERA) takes the mound in the third of a four-game series against Miami’s Tom Koehler (8-8, 3.71 ERA). Foltynewicz allowed six runs on nine hits in six innings in his previous start, against the Giants.
