Recap

Omar Infante belted a two-run triple and Derrek Lee added a solo homer as the Atlanta Braves guaranteed that they have not played their last game by holding on for an 8-7 triumph over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.

Brooks Conrad ripped a pair of run-scoring singles and Matt Diaz had three hits and an RBI single for Atlanta (91-71), which will await the result of Sunday's game between the San Diego Padres (90-71) and the San Francisco Giants (91-70).

Should the Padres win, the NL West rivals will vie for the division title in a play-in game on Monday, while the loser of that contest will then face the Braves in a play-in game on Tuesday at Turner Field.

Should the Padres lose, Atlanta will secure a wild-card berth and face the Giants in the National League Division Series. NL East champion Philadelphia (97-65) would then face the NL Central champion Cincinnati Reds.

Tim Hudson (17-9) also got in on the offense with an RBI single. The 35-year-old right-hander yielded two hits - two-run homers by John Mayberry and Jayson Werth - over seven innings to pick up the win.

Billy Wagner struck out the side in the ninth inning to secure his 37th save of the season.

Danys Baez (3-4) suffered the loss after permitting four runs and five hits in two-thirds of an inning.
