Braves Misery Continues at Home as They Lose 3-2 to Phillies
ATLANTA (AP) – Adam Morgan allowed only one run in seven innings, Mikael Franco homered and the Philadelphia Phillies held off Atlanta 3-2 on Tuesday night to extend the Braves’ home misery.
Morgan (1-0) matched the longest start of his career, allowing four hits and one walk.
Franco hit his seventh homer off Matt Wisler (1-3) to lead off the eighth.
Freddie Freeman led off the ninth with his fifth homer off Phillies closer Jeanmar Gomez. Gomez gave up a two-out single to Kelly Johnson before ending the game on Reid Brignac’s fly ball to center field for his 12th save.
The Braves (7-24) own the majors’ worst record and are 1-16 at Turner Field.
