ATLANTA (AP) - Outfielder Justin Upton has left the Braves' game against the Marlins with an apparent left leg injury.

Upton flexed his left leg after running to first base on an unsuccessful sacrifice bunt attempt in the fifth inning. Marlins catcher Koyie Hill threw out Mike Minor at third base as Upton reached on the fielder's choice.

Upton was removed from Sunday's game. His older brother, B.J. Upton, entered the game as a pinch-runner. Freddie Freeman followed with a three-run homer off Henderson Alvarez that gave Atlanta a 4-3 lead.

The Braves provided no immediate update on Justin Upton's status.
