MIAMI - In the wake of a bullpen meltdown that involved a fire extinguisher, Luke Jackson put the Atlanta Braves back on track with a harrowing save.

Jackson overcame three hits in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off the Miami Marlins for a 5-4 win Sunday afternoon, salvaging a split of the four-game series in South Florida between the best and worst teams in the National League's East Division.

The victory came less than 24 hours after the East-leading Braves' bullpen allowed seven runs in the final three innings of a 7-6 loss.
