MIAMI - The Florida Marlins could not take advantage of John Buck's game-tying three-run home run in the seventh inning against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.
Buck's blast to deep left field off reliever Anthony Varvaro tied the game at 3 and was the Marlins' fourth hit of the game.
After the Braves were retired in order in the eighth, the Marlins had a bases loaded situation with one out.
"I thought we were going to win the game in the bottom of the eighth inning," Marlins manager Jack McKeon said. "The bases are loaded, just put the ball in play, we just couldn't put the ball in play."
