MIAMI (AP) -- Sent to the plate after a scary scene, pinch-hitter Scott Cousins delivered a game-winning single in the 10th inning for his first big league hit and the Florida Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves 7-6 Sunday.
The Braves had overcome a 6-0 deficit. They began the day with a one-game lead over Philadelphia in the NL East.
Cousins batted after Emilio Bonifacio lined a foul that struck teammate Logan Morrison in the helmet in the on-deck circle. Morrison collapsed face-down as the crowd gasped, but quickly rose and walked off the field accompanied by a trainer.
Bonifacio hit a leadoff triple against Eric O'Flaherty (3-2). Cousins batted for Morrison and singled over the head of left fielder Melky Cabrera. It was only the second at-bat in the majors for Cousins.
