Simmons, Braves beat Brewers in 9th inning, 3-2

Posted:

Andrelton Simmons' single to the gap in right-center drove in Justin Upton with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Atlanta Braves a 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
Upton led off the ninth by hitting the first pitch from Donovan Hand (0-5) for a single to left. Freddie Freeman hit a fly ball to deep center for the first out before Evan Gattis, who had two hits, hit a grounder that Scooter Gennett bobbled behind second base for an infield hit, leaving runners at first and second.
The official scorer originally ruled Gennett's play an error before changing the call after the game.
Brian McCann popped out to third base for the second out before Simmons' first hit of the night ended the game.
Craig Kimbrel (4-3), who leads the majors with 49 saves, struck out the side in the ninth. He has 96 strikeouts in 65 innings.
