ATLANTA (AP) -- Pat Burrell hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in
the sixth inning and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Braves 4-3
on Thursday night to complete an unprecedented sweep of the
nine-game season series in Atlanta.

The Phillies remained a half game ahead of the Mets in the NL
East with their season-best seventh straight win. New York beat
Washington 7-2. Philadelphia is the first team to sweep a season series longer than four games in Atlanta. They swept three three-game series at Turner Field by a combined score of 49-24.
