PHOENIX (AP) - Gerardo Parra's bloop single brought Cody Ross home from second in the 11th inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night.

One night after he set the Braves franchise record for career saves, Craig Kimbrel blew his third of the season in 19 opportunities.

The Diamondbacks were 0 for 12 with runners in scoring position before Aaron Hill's pinch-hit double off Kimbrel down the right field line scored Ender Inciarte from second to tie it at 2-2.

Jason Heyward homered with two outs in the 10th off Addison Reed to put the Braves up 3-2, but Miguel Montero tied it again with an opposite-field, one-out shot off Anthony Varvaro in Arizona's half of the inning.

Ross singled with one out off David Carpenter (4-1), then Didi Gregorius walked to bring up Parra, whose soft fly ball fell in front of center fielder B.J. Upton.
