Chipper Jones lifts Braves past Reds, 7-6 in 12th

ATLANTA — Chipper Jones’ single in the 12th inning drove in Jordan Schafer to give the Atlanta Braves a 7-6 win over the weary Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night.

Brian McCann had four hits, including two homers. Freddie Freeman also homered for Atlanta.

It was the second extra-inning game in four days for the Reds, who lost 5-4 in 19 innings in Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

Carlos Fisher (0-2) walked Schafer to lead off the 12th. Fisher, working his second inning after throwing 5 2-3 innings in Wednesday night’s game, also walked Martin Prado.

The switch-hitting Jones, batting from the left side against the right-handed Fisher, pulled a pitch past second baseman Brandon Phillips into right field. The speedy Schafer easily beat Jay Bruce’s throw to the plate.
