Prado's Hit Gives Braves Another Walk-off Win Over Giants

For the second night in a row, the Braves defeat the Giants in walk-off fashion.

Martin Prado's 11th-inning single gave the Braves a 2-1 victory in Randall Delgado's second major-league start.

From the start, Delgado was incredible. He retired the side on nine pitches in the first inning, struck out four in the game and walked only one hitter, but he was erased on a nifty double play in the fourth.

The Braves offense gave Delgado a 1-0 lead in the third. Jose Constanza reached on a bunt single against Jonathan Sanchez and scored on Michael Bourn's single off Guillermo Mota. Sanchez had to be pulled from the game after injuring his left ankle on Delgado's sacrifice bunt earlier in the inning.

Delgado cruised through six innings without allowing a single hit. That all changed in the seventh when Cody Ross belted a home run leading off the inning to tie the game. Delgado was immediately pulled having thrown only 74 pitches.

When the Braves failed to score in the ninth, they began play in their 22nd extra-inning game of the season. Arodys Vizcaino held the Giants in check while the Braves offense went to work in the 11th. Brooks Conrad hit a one-out double off Javier Lopez and one out later, Prado delivered the game-winning hit. Vizcaino earned the win, the first of his career.

The Braves extended their Wild Card lead to six games while also gaining a game in the division.
