ATLANTA (AP) — Chris Johnson drove in three runs, Jason Heyward homered and Brandon Beachy pitched six strong innings to help the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 on Wednesday night.

The Braves have won two straight and 17 of 19 to lead the majors with a .612 winning percentage.

Philadelphia, which has lost seven of eight series since All-Star break, has dropped 19 of 23. The Phillies have lost 14 of 15 on the road.

Rain delayed the start of the game 1 hour, 48 minutes.

Beachy (2-0) held the Phillies scoreless until Dominic Brown’s 27th homer cut the lead to 5-2 with one out in the sixth.

John Lannan (3-6) lasted only 1 1-3 innings before leaving with a left knee injury.
