A walk-off walk in the ninth inning by Robbie Grossman allowed the Atlanta Braves to avoid disaster and capture a 2-1 victory over the Miami Marlins. Bryce Elder turned in another solid performance by tossing six scoreless innings. Austin Riley homered for the fourth consecutive game to give the Braves a 1-0 advantage. Kenley Jansen blew the save in the ninth, but a pair of key hits by Matt Olson and Michael Harris were key in the decisive ninth.
