Bourn's triple tied the game in the 8th, but he couldn't do it again in the 12th.
In a back-and-forth game where the Braves did have a 2-1 lead, the Braves wound up tied with the Marlins 4-4 in the ninth inning. Single runs scored via an Alex Gonzalez RBI double, sacrifice flies by Freddie Freeman and Jason Heyward and an RBI single in the bottom of the eighth by Alex Gonzalez that tied the game.
After a relatively quiet top of the ninth, Michael Bourn doubled to lead off the inning followed by a walk to Chipper Jones. Freddie Freeman failed to advance the runners and struck out. Dan Uggla legged out an infield single to load the bases. Brian McCann took a called strike three before Martin Prado grounded out weakly to end the inning.
In the bottom of the 10th, a leadoff walk to Jason Heyward and sacrifice by Jack Wilson put a runner again in scoring position. He advanced to third on another groundout but was stranded.
Much like the ninth, the Braves got the leadoff hitter on, and Dan Uggla's walk advanced pinch-runner Jose Constanza to second with one out. Brian McCann struck out swinging, and Martin Prado grounded out sharply to short to end another threat without the Braves scoring.
Anthony Varvaro walked the first batter, and after a sacrifice, walked another. He got the second out, but Cristhian Martinez came in and promptly surrendered Mike Stanton's pinch-hit RBI single.
In a repeat of the 10th inning, Heyward walked, and Wilson sacrificed. He was stranded there as Boscan and Bourn didn't get the ball out of the infield, and the Braves lost 5-4 in 12 innings. The Braves were 3-for-20 with RISP, and two of the hits were by Alex Gonzalez. The Braves had 14 hits, were walked five times and the Marlins made two errors but only scored four runs out of 21 baserunners. They stranded eight runners over their last four innings.
