Pat bats one out

Phillies 6, Braves 2
Greg Golson scores the go-ahead run in the eighth inning. (Tom Mihalek/AP)
J.A. Happ's 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball helped the Phillies enter the eighth inning tied. Greg Golson scored the winning run by charging in from third on a grounder, but it was Pat Burrell's three-run homer that put the game out of reach and gave Philly a 2 1/2-game lead in the NL East.
