Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Chris Young cracked the go-ahead home run in the top of the ninth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks edged the Atlanta Braves, 3-2, in the finale of a three-game set at Turner Field.
Braves closer Craig Kimbrel (0-1) got Aaron Hill to groundout for the first out of the frame, but then served up a middle-in fastball to Young, who got his arms extended on the pitch and smashed it into the third row beyond the left-center field wall.
Before tonight, Kimbrel had not allowed a home run since the Marlins' Omar Infante tagged him for a two-run shot on September 19, 2011.
David Hernandez (1-1) picked up the win with a scoreless eighth inning and J.J. Putz came on in the bottom of the ninth and retired the side in order to lock down his 14th save of the season for the D-Backs, who salvaged the final game of the series.
