Recap: Philadelphia vs. Atlanta

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Justin Upton and B.J. Upton both homered and threw a runner out at home as the Atlanta Braves held on for a 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.

Justin Upton broke a tie with a two-run blast in the seventh off Philadelphia starter A.J. Burnett (8-18).

The Phillies loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth, but closer Craig Kimbrel earned his 46th save when Andrelton Simmons snagged Ben Revere's liner. The shortstop had committed a fielding error earlier in the inning.

Aaron Harang (12-12) gave up two runs on eight hits in 6 2/3 innings to pick up the win, just the third in the last 15 games for Atlanta.

"He's been a pleasure to watch pitch every fifth day," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "He's a tremendous presence in the clubhouse."

Burnett, who has hinted that this could be his final season, allowed four runs on five hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings.

"It's obviously been a frustrating year," Burnett said. "You come over here and you expect to make an impact, but I made the wrong impact. I gave it all I had, that's all I can say."

Ryan Howard finished 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI for Philadelphia. His leadoff smash to right-center field tied the game at 1-1 in the second.

B.J. Upton responded by opening the third with a drive to right.

Chase Utley led off the fourth with a double, but was thrown out by Justin Upton trying to score on Howard's single to left. In the fifth, Wil Nieves was nailed by B.J. Upton trying to score from second on a Revere base hit to center.

Utley doubled again in the sixth and was able to score the tying run on a Howard single.

Freddie Freeman walked to begin the seventh and Justin Upton followed with his shot to left-center field.

Game Notes

Burnett became the Phillies' first 18-game loser since Steve Carlton went 13-20 in 1973 ... Atlanta scratched Alex Wood from Sunday's start due to a mild left forearm strain.
