ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves rallied from four down against the Miami Marlins to force extra innings with a tying run in the ninth, then celebrated their fourth walk-off victory of the season in the 10th inning as Brandon Phillips played hero.
Phillips singled to center field off Marlins closer A.J. Ramos to score Johan Camargo, who had led off with a single and moved up on a sacrifice bunt, to give the Braves an 8-7 victory on Saturday.
It was Phillips' third hit of the game, the seventh game-ending hit of his career and first with the Braves.
Atlanta sent the game to extra innings with a run in the ninth against Ramos (1-3) as Nick Markakis followed a leadoff double by Phillips with an RBI double for his third hit.
Phillips and Matt Adams also had three hits, with Adams hitting a homer and driving in four runs.
Arodys Vizcaino (3-2) pitched the top of the 10th for the Braves to get credit for the victory.
Adams staked the Braves to a 3-0 lead with an RBI double in the first inning and a two-run homer in the third, but the Marlins scored five runs in the fifth against Jaime Garcia after the Atlanta starter had faced one batter over the minimum the first four innings.
Tyler Moore plated the first two runs with his sixth homer. A balk and wild pitch preceded a tying RBI pinch single by Ichiro Suzuki, batting for Marlins starter Jeff Locke. Christian Yelich followed an intentional walk to Giancarlo Stanton with a two-out, two-run double.
Reliever Ian Krol allowed RBI singles to Justin Bour and Dee Gordon in the sixth after replacing Garcia, who was charged with six runs in 5 2/3 innings after recording a 1.49 ERA in his previous five starts.
The Braves cut into the Marlins' lead in the sixth against reliever Brad Ziegler. Tyler Flowers hit his fifth homer leading off the inning and Camargo delivered a RBI single.
Flowers' drive was misjudged by Yelich in center field with two outs in the seventh and the Braves made it a one-run game as Adams followed with his second RBI double.
Adams has 17 extra-base hits among his 32 hits since joining Atlanta on May 21 in a trade from St. Louis after first baseman Freddie Freeman broke his wrist. Nine of Adams' 10 homers have come as a Brave.
