ATLANTA (AP) - Jason Heyward hit a tying RBI double and Andrelton Simmons scored the go-ahead run on the same play in a seven-run eighth inning that gave the Atlanta Braves an 11-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The Braves rallied for their 23rd comeback victory, tops in the National League. Atlanta has won two straight and 4 of 5 to lead Washington by 6½ games in the NL East.

The Diamondbacks have lost 4 of 5.

Braves starter Tim Hudson extended his winless streak to 10 straight starts, allowing five hits, four runs and four walks with two strikeouts in 5 2-3 innings.
