It appeared the Miami Marlins were actually going to get a rare win on Sunday, when they took a 9-4 lead into the ninth at Atlanta.

The bottom of the ninth began with Dansby Swanson striking out, and ended with Dansby Swanson hitting a walk-off single.

Wait, what?

The Braves scored four times, allowing Swanson to bat again in the ninth with the bases loaded and two outs, trailing by one run. And Swanson made the most of his second opportunity in the inning with a two-run single to give the Braves a 10-9 comeback victory in walk-off fashion:

It’s a real shame to see the Marlins lose like this after the tremendous efforts Derek Jeter and the Marlins’ front office put into improving the team over the offseason!

The win gives the upstart Braves a 28-17 record and a 1.5 game lead in the NL East.
