Ross drove in both runs, including the walk-off hit in the 10th, and the Braves win in extra innings for the second straight night, beating the Pirates 2-1.
Jair Jurrjens was again denied his 13th win of the season and his offense didn't help him much. In three of the first five innings, the Braves put the leadoff hitter on base against Paul Maholm, but not once could they deliver a hit to score them. Maholm lasted seven innings, allowing nine hits and striking out eight; he did not walk a batter.
Jurrjens allowed a solo home run to Garrett Jones in the sixth, but his offense was finally able to string some hits together in the bottom of the inning. Singles from Martin Prado and Dan Uggla brought Ross to the plate and he delivered a game-tying single. Jurrjens also pitched seven innings, striking out four and allowing six hits; he walked three hitters.
The two teams traded outs for the next three innings and in the 10th, the Braves went to work against Chris Leroux. Nate McLouth and Freddie Freeman singled and Leroux intentionally walked Uggla to pitch to Ross. That turned out to be a bad idea when Ross hit the first pitch he saw to left field to score the game-winning run.
Scott Linebrink allowed a hit, but nothing else in the 10th for the win.
