Braves Win on Bloop Single Scoring Runner from 1st

No, this headline won't make any sense until we explain it and you see it.

The Atlanta Braves who seem to have the number of the much-hyped Washington Nationals, won a bizarre, attempted replay and error filled game Friday night on a walk-off bloop single by Justin Upton.

Why is this noteworthy?

Upton's 120 foot pop-fly dropped to the ground in front of National's rightfielder Bryce Harper. Meanwhile, Braves pinch runner Jordan Schaffer was off and running on contact because there were 2 outs, managed to score...all the way from 1st. The Braves win in 10 innings, 7-6.

In the grand scheme of things, the win wasn't that big a deal, but seeing someone score from first on a short hit like that is always impressive.
