Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Reid Brignac's two-run triple capped a five- run 13th inning and sent Philadelphia to a 6-1 victory over Atlanta in Monday's opener of a three-game series.
David Hale (2-2) allowed Ben Revere a leadoff single and a steal of second, then Chase Utley was intentionally walked with one out ahead of Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman allowing a Ryan Howard grounder to skip through his legs to score Revere.
Marlon Byrd followed by driving in Utley with a single, both runners advanced on a wild pitch and Domonic Brown was given a free pass, then Brignac's liner to right was allowed to roll to the wall to plate Byrd and Brown for a 6-1 game.
Antonio Bastardo (4-3) worked the final two scoreless frames for the victory. Cole Hamels was on the hill for the first seven, fanning six and walking two while permitting five hits. His outing was ruined by Jonathan Papelbon allowing the tying run in the home ninth.
