The Braves took advantage of late control problems by starter Michael Pineda (7-5) and the Mariners' inability to come through with a clutch hit early against Tommy Hanson. Seattle left the bases loaded in the second inning, and runners on second and third in the fourth. They were limited to one run both times. Hanson (9-4) settled down and gave his offense time to rally. Dan Uggla hit his 12th homer in the fifth inning, and the Braves added an unearned run in the sixth before scoring three times in the seventh. Jordan Schafer had an RBI single in front of McCann's sixth hit of the series.
