Maikel Franco homered in the 5th off Luiz Gohara, the only oasis in what was otherwise 7 innings of a Gohara desert for the Phillies.

Luiz allowed 5 hits and 2 walks along with the run, and struck out 9.  The Phillies tacked on a run in the 8th against A.J. Minter.  The Braves made it interesting in the 9th with a couple of ground balls up the middle by Freddie Freeman and Kurt Suzuki, but around those singles, Hector Neris struck out 3.

Someone named Nick Pivetta went 6 innings for the Phillies, allowing 5 hits and a walk, and striking out 4.  Ender Inciarte had 3 hits, giving him 197 on the season.  The Freeze ran down Paul Byrd in the heavily promoted match race.

The Braves close their first season at SunTrust Park at 37 – 44, yet still stand 9 games in front of the Phloatin’ Phils after taking the series 2 games to 1.  Doubleheader Monday against the Mets; the first game starts at 4:10.

(Has anyone used Gohara desert yet?  If so, I apologize.)
