Inciarte's bases-loaded walk lifts Braves past Marlins, 6-5

ATLANTA (AP) - Ender Inciarte's bases-loaded walk from Kyle Barraclough with two outs in the ninth inning lifted the Atlanta Braves to a 6-5 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

Barraclough threw four straight balls to Inciarte. While Barraclough began his slow walk off the field, Inciarte was swarmed by his teammates in an impromptu celebration near first base.

It was the Braves' second ninth-inning win in the series.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his 54th homer for Miami. Johan Camargo hit a two-run homer for Atlanta.

The loss by Atlanta reduced the Washington Nationals' magic number to clinch the NL East to two.
