ATLANTA (AP) — Kris Medlen continued his late-season surge by winning his fourth straight start, Chris Johnson hit a two-run home run and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 Tuesday night.

Medlen (10-10) appeared to be in danger of being sent to the bullpen one month ago. In late July, Tim Hudson was lost for the season with a broken right ankle and Paul Maholm went on the 15-day DL with a bruised left wrist.

Though Maholm may be only one minor league rehab start away from coming off the disabled list, Medlen’s spot in the rotation appears more secure. He left after walking Erik Kratz to open the eighth, getting a standing ovation after allowing one run on five hits in seven innings.

After David Carpenter pitched a perfect eighth, Craig Kimbrel earned his 37th save by recording the final three outs.
