Things fall apart in the eighth inning as Braves lose to Mariners

The Braves were up 6-5 going into the eighth inning. Then Jim Johnson entered the game and the Braves were no longer leading by the time he exited. Going into the bottom of the eighth inning, the Braves had a one-run lead and Jim Johnson was given the ball. By the time the eighth inning was over, the Mariners had scored five runs in that frame alone and were on their way to an eventual 9-6 victory. Things started well enough for Atlanta in this one. The Braves recorded three straight hits to start the game, with the third hit being an RBI from Freddie Freeman that put the Braves on the...
