PHILS BEAT BRAVES FOR 13TH OF LAST 18 AGAINST NL EAST!

By Peter Marx

The Phillies didn’t do much through four innings against Braves starter Charlie Morton.

And in the fifth they sent eight batters to the plate, capitalizing on two Braves errors, and scoring five runs to fuel a 7-2 victory in the rubber match of the three-game series.

It marked their highest run-scoring output since a 10-0 victory July 16 in Miami and only the second time since July 5 that they scored more than six runs in a game.

And it happened without them hitting a home run and mustering only two extra-base hits, including Nick Castellanos’ fly-ball double that fell between three Braves players in right field.

Kyle Gibson pitched 6 innings and gave up four hits and 2 runs in running his record to 6-4.
