PHILDELPHIA -- The 1980 Phillies lost their second straight game to the 1974 Braves Saturday behind veteran run-producers Hank Aaron and Darrell Evans.

Actually, it was Gary Sheffield and Andruw Jones who led the Braves to their fifth straight win, a 4-3 decision on another throwback uniform day.

Sheffield drove in the first run of a three-run third inning with a one-out double to score Rafeal Furcal and move Julio Franco to third. Both had singled. After an intentional walk to Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones smacked a single to center to score two more runs. Sheffield also singled in Franco with the Braves' first run in the first inning. All the runs were charged to losing pitcher Terry Adams (4-7).

The Phillies threatened in the ninth against closer John Smoltz, but Travis Lee grounded to first to end the game. Smoltz converted his 36th save in 39 opportunities.

Jason Marquis (7-5) doesn't resemble 1974 Braves Buzz Capra or Phil Niekro, though he held the Phillies to two runs on two hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings. He hadn't allowed a hit until Mike Lieberthal led off the fifth inning with a home run.

Kevin Gryboski relieved in the sixth with a man on and one out. Two runs eventually scored, the last on Lieberthal's slow grounder to short.

Braves manager Bobby Cox then took advantage of Jimmy Rollins' thumb injury that hurts when he swings right-handed. Cox brought in left-hander Chris Hammond, who got Rollins to ground to short to end the inning.

Adams suffered through his third straight poor outing, after stringing together four good ones. Adams allowed four runs on six hits and three walks in five innings Saturday. In his past four outings, he has walked 15 in 16 innings and has an 11.25 ERA. In four starts before that, he was 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA and tossed a season-high seven innings in three straight.

Pat Burrell nearly tied the game in the eighth with a deep fly but left-fielder Chipper Jones caught up to it on the warning track.

The game took nearly three hours, five minutes longer than Friday's 2:45 rain delay. The Phillies have lost three straight games and fell 18 games behind the first-place Braves.
