ATLANTA (AP) — Vladimir Guerrero Jr. homered and drove in three runs and the Toronto Blue Jays took advantage of Atlanta’s indecisive fielding in the eighth inning, rallying past the Braves 5-3.

Guerrero had three hits, including a tying single in a three-run eighth.

Ronald Acuña Jr. hit his major league-leading 11th homer for Atlanta and Marcell Ozuna also connected.

The teams opened the three-game interleague series in Atlanta less than two weeks after the Blue Jays swept three games from the Braves in Toronto’s temporary home in Dunedin, Florida.
