ATLANTA -- As Greg Maddux and the Braves returned to their winning ways, the Phillies waved goodbye to a four-game winning streak.

Maddux (10-3) pitched effectively in humid conditions and got support from Chipper Jones as the Braves beat the Phillies, 5-3, on Saturday at Turner Field.

Maddux, who lost Monday in Florida for the first time since April 30, allowed two earned runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings. He has recorded double-digit win seasons for the past 15 years. Also, Maddux has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his past nine starts, and his NL-leading ERA is 2.56.

Maddux held the Phillies scoreless in the first five innings and seemed to be in control in the sixth before running into some trouble with two outs.

After striking out the first two batters, Maddux walked Scott Rolen. The Phillies' third baseman then stole second before coming home on Travis Lee's RBI single.

Wes Helms prolonged the inning when he was unable to field Mike Lieberthal's slow grounder in front of first base.

Maddux, who threw a season-high 100 pitches, was then replaced by Chris Hammond. Hammond then allowed a bloop single by Marlon Anderson that scored Lee and cut the Phillies' deficit to 4-2.

Chipper Jones' two-run homer off Phillies starter Joe Roa in the third inning allowed the Braves to build a four-run lead. Jones, who has 11 homers, hadn't homered since July 13 and has just two since June 23.

The Braves scored their other runs on consecutive first-nning doubles by Matt Franco and Gary Sheffield and a second-inning sac fly by Henry Blanco. Sheffield reached base for a team-record 52nd consecutive game.

Roa, who was making his first Major League start since 1997, allowed four earned runs on six hits in four innings. Before being called up on July 11, he was 14-0 with a 1.86 ERA at Triple-A Scranton.

Andruw Jones felt dizzy during the top of the fifth inning, and Darren Bragg pinch hit for him in the bottom half. Andruw Jones, who had played in all but four innings entering Saturday's action, is expected to play Sunday.

Bragg made what likely was a game-saving catch in the seventh inning when he crashed into the wall in right-center field while catching a deep drive by Pat Burrell. The ball, which was hit off Tim Spooneybarger, came with nobody out and runners on first and second.

Spooneybarger, who had inherited the two runners from Hammond, then induced Rolen to ground into an inning-ending double play.

John Smoltz struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to record his Major League-leading 38th save. He has converted 24 straight opportunities and is only one short of Mark Wohlers' franchise-record 39, which he set in 1996. Saturday's heat also affected home plate umpire Mark Hirschbeck, who wasn't feeling good before the start of the game. He left after the top of the third inning. Matt Hollowell, who had been at second base, took over for Hirschbeck.

The Phillies, who took Friday's opening game of the three-game series, will send Vicente Padilla to the mound to face Tom Glavine in Sunday's finale. The Braves have won seven of 11 games against the Phillies this season.
