Hellickson Uses Arm, Bat To Help Phillies Beat Braves

ATLANTA (AP) — Jeremy Hellickson pitched into the sixth inning and drove in the go-ahead run with a two-run double to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the bumbling Atlanta Braves 9-5 on Saturday night.

Atlanta, the major’s worst team, put on a clinic of bad baseball in the eighth while Philadelphia scored four runs without a hit.

Hunter Cervenka issued four walks, Ryan Weber hit a batter and two infielders committed an error to bring a chorus of boos from the fans.

Hellickson (8-7) allowed nine hits, three runs and one walk and struck out two in 5 2/3 innings.

Braves starter Julio Teheran (3-9) blew a 2-1 lead in the fifth when Hellickson doubled over the bag at third.
