Phillies Vs. Braves Final Score: Philadelphia Drops 50th Game Of 2012 In 4-3 Loss

The Philadelphia Phillies were defeated 4-3 on Sunday by the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies dropped all three games of the three-game set against Atlanta. The loss was the 50th of the season for the Phillies. They did not lose their 50th game last season until September 12.

Jason Pridie got the Phillies off to a good start in the game with his two-run second inning homer. Dan Uggla's two-run shot tied the game in the top of the fourth inning. Pridie struck back in the bottom of the inning with an RBI double. Brian McCann tied the game up in the top of the fifth inning with an RBI single. McCann's solo shot in the seventh inning put the Braves up for good.

Vance Worley got the start for the Phillies and went six innings. Worley gave up seven hits, four walks and three earned runs while striking out five batters. However, it was Raul Valdez who replaced Worley who took the loss for giving up two hits and an earned run in 2/3 innings of work. Jair Jurrjens got the win for the Braves, giving up six hits, three earned runs and a walk in seven innings of work. Craig Kimbrel struck out two batters in the ninth inning to pick up his 25th save for the Braves.

The Phillies (37-50) will begin their next series against the Colorado Rockies (33-52) on Friday at Coors Field. The road trip might be welcomed as Philadelphia is only 17-27 at home this season.
