Helms' hit helps Marlins beat Braves 5-4

MIAMI (AP) - Wes Helms hit a bases-loaded RBI single with none out in the 11th inning Sunday, and the Florida Marlins earned their fourth walkoff win of the week, beating the Atlanta Braves 5-4.

The Marlins went 7-3 on their homestand, with six wins by one run. The Braves loaded the bases four times, including in the 11th, and those situations produced only one run. They stranded 11 runners.

Florida's Hanley Ramirez singled off Jesse Chavez (2-2) to start the bottom of the 11th, and he took third on a single by Dan Uggla. After Cody Ross was intentionally walked to load the bases, Helms hit an 0-1 pitch through the left side of the infield and was mobbed after rounding first base.

Florida has seven walkoff wins this season.
