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.
