Recap: Atlanta vs. Philadelphia

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Cesar Hernandez tallied four hits and two runs scored in the Philadelphia Phillies' 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves in the third test of a four-game set.

Trailing 5-1 after eight innings of play, the Braves got within one after Justin Upton smacked a three-run homer in the ninth off Jonathan Papelbon. Freddie Freeman then singled and was put into scoring position when Evan Gattis walked, but Chris Johnson grounded out to shortstop to end the game.

With the loss, the Braves are one game behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the best record in the National League. Atlanta holds the head-to-head tiebreaker after winning the season series.

Papelbon surrendered four hits and a walk in the final frame.

Jimmy Rollins had two hits and a pair of runs scored for the Phillies, who snapped a three-game slide.

Ethan Martin allowed a run on four hits and a walk in a three-inning start for Philadelphia. Luis Garcia (1-1) picked up the win by tossing a scoreless fourth and fifth.

"Our young guys came out of the bullpen and did a great job," Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown said.

Mike Minor (13-9) fanned six, but yielded two runs on five hits and three walks over six frames for Atlanta, which had won four of its last six tilts coming in.

"I feel like I had pretty good stuff tonight. I was locating ok," Minor said.

Cameron Rupp's two-out, two-run single in the top of the first opened the scoring before Atlanta answered with a run in the home half on a Freeman sacrifice fly.

Both teams were held scoreless over the next five innings, before the Phillies added to their lead with two runs in the seventh and another in the eighth.

RBI singles by Brown and Rollins in the seventh and Chase Utley's bases- loaded single in the eighth upped the lead to 5-1.

Game Notes

The Phillies were 5-for-16 with runners in scoring position and banged out 13 hits ... Atlanta was 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position ... Upton's blast was his 27th of the year.
