    Simmons said those are all good signs for the Braves' lineup. Simmons hit a game-ending double off Mark Melancon in the 10th inning, lifting the Atlanta Braves to a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night. Simmons said he was trying too hard when he left the bases loaded with a groundout to end the eighth, and he adjusted in the 10th inning. Uggla jogged calmly around third base with the winning run before the Braves raced to celebrate with Simmons near second base. Upton drilled a game-tying sixth-inning home run and Uggla capped a two-hit performance with a 10th-inning leadof walk that put him in position to score on Andrelton Simmons' walk-off double in Tuesday night's 5-4 win over the Pirates at Turner Field. "Seeing everybody run and chase me down was kind of an awkward feeling. I didn't know what to do. "They are big guys," he added.
