Braves walk off for series win over Marlins - Monday 11th September, 2017

Rio Ruiz grounds a two-run single to left field, tying the game at 8 in the bottom of the 9th inning

Miami carried an 8-5 advantage into the ninth inning, but Atlanta pulled even on Rio Ruiz's two-out, two-run single with the bases loaded against Javy Guerra, who inherited two runners after lefty Jarlin Garcia had already allowed a run.

The Marlins had taken the lead in the eighth on Dee Gordon's pinch-hit homer, which extended his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games. Miami added two runs in the ninth on Christian Yelich's RBI double and Justin Bour's sacrifice fly.

Flash in a pinch: Gordon has been getting Sundays off for a few weeks, but that didn't mean the speedy second baseman wasn't available to contribute. Gordon knocked his first career pinch-hit home run. Jose Ramirez threw a first-pitch, 87.1-mph slider, and Gordon drove it 364 feet with an exit velocity of 100.5 mph, according to Marlins: Off on Monday, the Marlins open a three-game series in Philadelphia at 7:05 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Rookie left-hander
