Recap


Braves 4, Phillies 1: Chris Johnson drove home two runs and Alex Wood gave up one run in six innings as visiting Atlanta completed a three-game sweep to extend its winning streak to 10.

Johnson went 2-for-4 to raise his National League-leading average to .346. Wood (2-2) allowed just two hits while striking out three and Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 34th save as Atlanta extended its lead over Washington in the NL East to 12 ½ games.

Cliff Lee (10-5) surrendered four runs (three earned) on eight hits in five innings with eight strikeouts. The Phillies finished with four hits and have lost 13 of their past 14 games.

Johnson lined a single to right in the first to plate Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman, giving the Braves a 2-0 advantage. Philadelphia pulled within one Michael Young’s grounder in the third, but Heyward singled home a run in the fourth and scored on Justin Upton’s double to make it 4-1.

Both B.J. Upton and Justin Upton added two hits for the Braves. Heyward scored twice.
