Phillies Vs. Braves: Late Pop Powers Atlanta To 12-6 Win

One night after Cole Hamels pitched a complete game shutout, effective starting pitching was nowhere to be found at Citizens Bank Ballpark. Tim Hudson and Kyle Kendrick both surrendered six runs through the first five innings of Wednesday's game. Unfortunately for the Phillies, the bullpen gave up another six on the way to a 12-6 loss.

Jimmy Rollins hit a homer and a double, accounting for two RBIs and a pair of runs. Ryan Howard hit a three-run shot in the fifth to tie up.

Atlanta broke things open in the seventh when Dan Uggla drove in two with a double to left. Antonio Bastardo was tagged with the loss, giving up three runs in the seventh.

Philadelphia gets a day off on Thursday before the Cardinals visit for a weekend series on Friday.
