Marlins Beat Braves As MLB Honors Troops With Historic Game At Fort Bragg


Major League Baseball honored the troops with a special game in Fort Bragg, N.C., on Sunday.

The Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves played in the first ever MLB game at a military base, and Miami came away with a 5-2 win.

The Marlins broke open a scoreless game with two runs in the fifth, and they built a commanding five-run lead heading into the bottom of the ninth. The Braves managed a bit of a comeback, but their efforts fell short. Adam Conley got the win for Miami, and catcher J.T. Realmuto led the way offensively with three runs, a homer and two RBIs.

If you missed the game or want to relive the special event at Fort Bragg, here are a few photos:
