Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Chipper Jones hit a game-winning three-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to cap a five-run rally as the Atlanta Braves stunned the Philadelphia Phillies, 8-7, in the finale of a three-game series Sunday.

The Phillies led 7-3 when Jonathan Papelbon (3-6) entered the game with runners on first and second and one out in the ninth. He struck out pinch- hitter Lyle Overbay, but walked Michael Bourn to load the bases.

Martin Prado ripped one down the third base line that went off the glove of Kevin Frandsen for a two-run double. Jones then hammered a 1-1 fastball about three rows deep in right-center field to help the Braves snatch the victory.

Peter Moylan (1-0) was credited with the win after getting John Mayberry Jr. to ground into the final out in the top of the inning.
