MLB: Atlanta 4, Toronto 3 (10 innings)

June 9, 2012 at 12:08 AM   |   Comments

ATLANTA, June 9 (UPI) -- J.P. Arencibia threw wildly as Jason Heyward stole third in the 10th inning Friday and Heyward came around to score to give Atlanta a 4-3 win over Toronto.

Heyward finished off a big night in which he doubled home a run in the sixth and then scored on a balk by reliever Luis Perez.

Toronto forged a 3-3 tie in the eighth when Edwin Encarnacion scored on a groundout by Yunel Escobar, but Heyward was again in the middle of the action when Atlanta came up with a walkoff victory -- its fifth consecutive win.

Heyward beat out an infield single to open the 10th against Francisco Cordero (1-4) and advanced to second on a sacrifice by pinch-hitter Jack Wilson. With Andrelton Simmons at the plate, Heyward broke for third and then took advantage of Arencibia's wild throw to score the winning run.

That made a winner out of Cristhian Martinez (3-1), who walked one and struck out two in the top of the 10th.
