NBC SportsSean Murphy hit a game-tying two-run homer in the ninth as the Braves came back to beat the Diamondbacks 5-4 in 11 innings on Monday.

Murphy homered off Paul Sewald with two outs in the ninth, and the Braves went on to prevail in the 11th. Murphy also singled tonight in his first game since being dropped to the eighth spot in the lineup. If recent trends hold, he'll sit in favor of Travis d'Arnaud on Tuesday, but maybe he'll hit higher than eighth on Wednesday.

NBC SportsSean Murphy has been dropped to eighth in the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.

It seems like batting Murphy sixth and Adam Duvall eighth against a righty would make more sense, but Duvall is in the sixth spot today. Murphy started over Travis d'Arnaud about two-thirds of the time in June, but they've strictly alternated starts in the Braves' last six games. He still has a nice ceiling, but these manueverings make Murphy a pretty weak option in one-catcher mixed leagues.
