Marlins manager Mike Redmond challenged. After a delay of nearly 5 minutes, the call finally came down from the replay center: all runners safe. The video showed Uggla making the catch, but losing control as he grabbed the ball with his right hand - before he actually went into his throwing motion.

That left Miami with the bases loaded and only one out. But Walden fanned Casey McGehee on a called third strike and got Jones on a grounder to Uggla, who stumbled a bit just beyond the infield dirt but made the inning-ending play.

NOTES: Braves LHP Mike Minor is getting close to rejoining the Braves rotation. After going six innings for Triple-A Gwinnett over the weekend, he’ll throw a side session before Tuesday’s game against the Marlins. If all goes well, Minor would likely make his first major league start on Saturday against Cincinnati. … Florida C Jarrod Saltalamacchia was back at Turner Field for the first time since he was traded by the Braves in 2007 in a much-debated deal that brought Mark Teixeira to Atlanta. Saltalamacchia expected to be a little emotional when he stepped on the field. “This is where it started with me,” he said.
