It also marked the Braves’ fifth win in a row.
Lane Adams led the charge offensively with an RBI ground rule double in the second and a tie-breaking solo home run in the fifth.
Anibal Sanchez picked up the win for Atlanta after giving up just one run and four hits, walking none and striking out one in five innings. Shane Carle was credited with the save. Aaron Nola took the loss for Philadelphia.
