One-Paragraph Recap: Braves At Marlins, Game 1

In a tense, up-and-down contest, the Braves came back from 4-1 and 5-4 deficits (thanks to Brian McCann’s 3-run homer and RBI single). They even took the lead in the 9th inning on Matt Diaz’s bases-loaded hit-by-pitch. But closer Billy Wagner was wild in the 9th inning, walking the leadoff man and throwing wildly to allow the tying run to score (it was ruled a passed ball). He then promptly gave up a game-winning hit to the Marlins’ Donnie Murphy. Marlins win, 7-6.
