Phillies score 2 on Double to beat Braves
A two-run double was all the Philadelphia Phillies needed to beat the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park Tuesday night. This was the first game of a three-game series between the two clubs. The loss drops the Braves’ record to 51-35 on the season. The Braves still hold a 4 1/2-game lead over Philadelphia in the National League East Division. Atlanta hosts Philadelphia again tonight at 7pm, weather permitting.
