MIAMI (AP) - Justin Upton homered, doubled twice and scored three runs to help the Atlanta Braves earn their 27th comeback victory when they beat the Miami Marlins 6-4 Tuesday night.

The Braves overcame deficits of 3-1 and 4-3. They lead the NL in come-from-behind wins.

Pitchers for the two teams combined to retire 30 consecutive batters Monday, when Atlanta won 7-1 in 14 innings. The second game of the series was a slugfest by comparison, with Upton leading the way.

He doubled home a run in the third, doubled and scored to make it 4-all in the fifth, then hit his 16th home run - but first since June 12 - leading off the seventh against reliever Ryan Webb.

In Monday's marathon, Upton hit a two-run double to put Atlanta ahead in the final inning.
