Upton belts mammoth home run for Braves
FEB 25, 2013 1:46p ET
Upton's teammates estimated that the homer went at least 450 feet. It was his first hit of the spring since joining the Braves in a blockbuster trade with the Diamondbacks.
The Marlins led 1-0 when Jason Heyward opened the fourth with a drive over the right-field wall. Upton made it back-to-back homers off loser Scott Maine, and brother B.J. Upton chipped in with a double, coming around to score on a stolen base and wild pitch.
Atlanta extended the lead to 7-1 before Miami put together a five-run eighth. Anthony Varvaro worked the ninth for a save.
