ATLANTA -- The Braves got a great crowd for Saturday's game (32,727) considering all the things going on in Atlanta this weekend -- DragonCon, NASCAR and the start of college football. There may not be a bigger college football fan than Braves pitcher Tim Hudson who pitched for Auburn in 1996-97. So it was probably a big thrill for him to serve as honorary team captain at Auburn's season opener against Washington State.
Hudson, who's currently on the disabled list with a fractured ankle, is working toward his degree from Auburn and recently donated 1 million to the Tigers baseball team.
Back at Turner Field, the Braves knocked off the Marlins 5-4 in 11 innings for their sixth straight win. The Braves finish the month of August 20-7, their first 20-win month since May 2010. It was the 22nd time this season the team has won a game on its final at bat.
Here are three thoughts from Saturday's dramatic victory.
