PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Dan Uggla hit two home runs, including a grand slam in the ninth inning Monday night that lifted the Atlanta Braves to a wild 9-6 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Evan Gattis also homered twice as the Braves won their fourth straight. The teams combined for five homers and 12 runs in the final two innings.
Gattis, Uggla and Andrelton Simmons hit consecutive homers in the eighth that put Atlanta ahead 5-1.
Domonic Brown's three-run homer capped a five-run bottom of the eighth that gave the Phillies a 6-5 lead.
But the Braves rallied against Jake Diekman (1-1). B.J. Upton walked, Freddie Freeman reached on a grounder when second baseman Chase Utley tried for a forceout and Justin Upton walked.
After Gattis struck out, Uggla drove an 0-2 pitch from Diekman deep to left.
Luis Avilan (3-1) wound up with the win and David Carpenter got his first save.
