Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - After the Atlanta Braves rallied in the eighth, the Upton brothers brought them home in the ninth.

B.J. Upton homered off Carlos Marmol to tie the contest, and brother Justin crushed his second homer of the game two batters later to cap the comeback and give the Braves a 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

Atlanta trailed 5-1 after seven innings, but scored three runs in the eighth. Eric O'Flaherty (1-0) picked up the win with a scoreless top of the ninth.

Marmol (0-1) recorded just a single out in the ninth.
