Phillies beat Braves 6-4, grab share of NL East lead with Mets11 hours ago

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Phillies are done chasing.

After 159 games, the Phillies are finally atop the division standings - albeit tied with the free-falling New York Mets. Ryan Howard hit his 44th homer, Pat Burrell also connected and the Phillies roughed up John Smoltz, before hanging on for a 6-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.

The collapsing Mets lost 3-0 to St. Louis to drop into a tie with Philadelphia (87-72) for first place. Both teams have three games left. The Phillies host Washington, which is coming off a three-game sweep at Shea Stadium. The Mets host Florida.

"It's a good feeling," Howard said. "But, really, we haven't done anything. We have three games left. This is what it's all about."

Chipper Jones and Mark Teixeira hit consecutive homers for the Braves, who were mathematically eliminated from postseason contention for the second straight year after winning 14 straight division titles.

While the Phillies celebrated their 11th win in 14 games, a crowd of 40,589 cheered wildly and waved their white-and-red "Fightin' Phils" towels.

For a change, there were no "E-A-G-L-E-S" chants at Citizens Bank Park.

"I couldn't hear myself think. That was great," closer Brett Myers said.

Kyle Kendrick (10-4) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. Tom Gordon escaped a jam in the seventh, J.C. Romero pitches a scoreless eighth and Myers allowed a leadoff homer to Jeff Francoeur in the ninth before getting three outs for his 21st save in 24 chances.

The Phillies hadn't spent a day in first place all season, and were seven games behind the Mets after losing to Colorado on Sept. 12. They remained one game behind San Diego in the wild-card standings. The Padres beat Milwaukee 9-5. The Rockies are also a game behind the Padres.

After falling short in the final weekend the last two seasons, the Phillies could be heading to the playoffs for the first time since 1993. Meanwhile, Atlanta is going home for the second straight year after their unprecedented string of division championships.

Desperate to keep their faint playoff hopes alive, the Braves got a poor performance from an unlikely source. Smoltz (14-8) gave up six runs - five earned - and seven hits, striking out eight in four innings. It was his shortest outing since going 3 1-3 innings on May 29, and only the fourth time in 32 starts he allowed more than three earned runs.

"Everybody here can improve on their year and I'm looking forward to it," Smoltz said of next season.

The Braves sliced Philly's lead in half when Jones hit an opposite-field, two-run homer and Teixeira followed with a solo shot to cut it to 6-3 in the sixth.

The Phillies scored four times before Smoltz recorded an out. Rollins hit Smoltz's first pitch up the middle for a single and Shane Victorino put down a perfect bunt on the next offering. Smoltz didn't have a chance to get the speedy Victorino, but threw anyway and the ball ended up down the right field line. Rollins scored and Victorino went to third.

Two pitches in, the Phillies led 1-0.

Chase Utley followed with a grounder to first baseman Teixeira. The normally sure-handed Teixeira booted it for an error, allowing Victorino to score.

Howard then turned on an inside pitch and lined it into the right-field seats to make it 4-0.

"Their offence is very good," Braves manager Bobby Cox said.

In his next at-bat, Howard swung at and missed a down-and-away splitter for his 196th strikeout to set the single-season major league record. He broke the mark established in 2004 by Adam Dunn of the Cincinnati Reds.

Last season's NL MVP, Howard has 130 RBIs. He struck out again in the fifth.

After Howard fanned, Aaron Rowand doubled. Burrell then hit a towering drive that just cleared the wall in left-centre for his 30th homer, giving the Phillies a 6-0 lead.

Burrell was 2-for-26 with 14 strikeouts lifetime against Smoltz before he homered.

"I told (Manuel) last night that I'm bound to do something," Burrell said. "He made a mistake and I finally hit it."

Kendrick mowed down the Braves until the sixth. The rookie right-hander has saved Philadelphia's depleted pitching staff since coming up from Double-A Reading after Freddy Garcia went down for the season in June.

"It's exciting, but we still have work to do," Kendrick said.

Notes: Burrell moved into fifth-place on the Phillies' all-time list with his 218th career homer, passing Cy Williams. ... Rollins needs two more at-bats to set the single-season major league record. Willie Wilson had 705 at-bats for Kansas City in 1980. ... Smoltz hasn't beaten the Phillies since July 1, 2005. ... Teixeira homered in each of the three games in Philly.

I am cautiously optimistic at this point that the Sillies may do something this year.

however, with 3 games left, it ain't over 'til it's over.

Still want to see the Mets implode totally, though ...

Bluesguy....my thoughts exactly! Being a life long resident of the Philly area, the Phils are my home team, but, being married to a Boston girl, we're huge Sox fans as well. Last night was strange, watching the Phils on TV and the Sox on the internet at the same time. Thrilled for the Phils, watching the Sox leave the bases loaded in the 9th and lose by 1 run. It went like this for about 15 minutes: "Yayyyy!!! damn.....Yayyyyy!!! damn...." (the cleaned up version presented here!)

If I have to face reality, the Phils usually fall back when they get close to the top - I hope I'm wrong this year, and this team seems ready to make the final push. With their pitching, I can't expect a long playoff run though. The Sox? I love 'em dearly as my "adopted" team, but they peaked maybe 2 months ago - my hopes are not backed by any sound logic, for sure!

Son, in conclusion...GO PHILS!!!!! and...GO SAWXXXX!!!!!

I've stated in other threads that I'm cautiously optimistic about the Phils...at some point their pitching will let them down. I will say that, in hindsight, letting Wagner sign with the Mutts was a good idea, he's been a big help to them lately.

Eaton today...not exactly a confidence-setter! I would have trouble sitting through this one too, but, fortunately fore me, I have a band job and will not be able to watch - I can keep tabs, but don't have to suffer with each pitch.

Oh yeah....Yanks came from ahead and lost -Sox win the division! With the Phils in 1st, and a beautiful sunny fall day kicking up, life is looking pretty good today!!!!!

If Eaton don't pitch good today, he'll get the hook so fast he'll think he's on The Gong Show

I hate to have to do this because this is more about the Mets choking than the Phillies winning anything, but congrats to the Phillies. You are the lucky recipiants of the biggest choke in MLB history. This is now our 1964 and we are gonna have to sit back and take it. Good luck in the playoffs. No more baseball for me this year. Thank God for Football and Hockey.

Pete
