Florida Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – September 12, 2011 – ESPN.

This is really frustrating. The Braves rallied back, twice, from two runs down to tie it, only to go into extras and continually fail to get the go-ahead run in. Eventually, the Marlins did get the run in.

The Marlins got their first two runs thanks largely to triples off of Brandon Beachy. With one out in the first, Omar Infante tripled, then came home on a single. In the third, Emilio Bonifacio led off with a triple, then scored on an Infante sac fly.

The Braves got the first two on in the fourth, but looked like they were going to blow it when Martin Prado and Jason Heyward both struck out, but Alex Gonzalez came through with a double to score Dan Uggla. Unfortunately, it was cut off and Brian McCann coulnd’t score from first. Still, 2-1. In the fifth, Michael Bourn reached on an infield single and Chipper Jones singled to make it first and third; Bourn scored on a Freddie Freeman sac fly to tie it.

Beachy then lost it; after striking out the first man in the sixth, he gave up a walk and two singles to make it 3-2; Arodys Vizcaino came in and threw a wild pitch that made it 4-2. The Braves cut it to 4-3 with a triple of their own, by Martin Prado, and a Heyward sac fly. In the eighth, Heyward reached on an infield single and went to second on a throwing error, scoring on a AAG single to tie it.

Now the frustration sets in. In the ninth, Bourn led off with a double and Chipper was intentionally walked. Freeman struck out, but Uggla’s infield single loaded the bases, only for McCann to strike out and Prado to ground out to end it. Heyward walked leading off the tenth, was bunted to second, and was stranded. Chipper reached on an error in the eleventh, was run for, and the pinch-runner was stranded.

In the twelfth, Anthony Varvaro, in his second inning of work, allowed a couple on on walks. With two out, Fredi pulled him for Cristhian Martinez, who allowed an RBI single by Giancarlo Stanton to give the Marlins the lead. Heyward again walked to lead off the twelfth, and again was stranded.
