Recap: Philadelphia Phillies Complete Three Game Sweep Of Atlanta Braves

Roy Oswalt combined with Ryan Madson and Brad Lidge for a one hitter as the Philadelphia Phillies swept the Atlanta Braves to all but lock up the NL East.

Pitching ruled in this one as the Phillies only managed two hits off Braves' starter Tommy Hanson, but with Hanson out of the game in the 8th Raul Ibanez hit a 2-out RBI double to score Jayson Werth (who walked 3 times tonight) for the game's only run.

Oswalt struck out 8 and walked just one and still remains undefeated at Citizens Bank Park this season.

The Phillies have a day off before hosting the Mets for a weekend series.
