Braves Smack Phillies Around, Win By Eight

The Braves scored three in the sixth inning to break a 2-2 tie and Jason Heyward put the icing on the cake with a solo shot in the seventh, giving the final touch to the Braves' 6-2 victory.

The Nationals scored first with Ryan Zimmerman's two-run double in the third inning. The Braves scored two in the fourth and three more in the sixth. Jason Heyward hit his first Grapefruit League home run in the seventh, off of reliever Steven Shell.

Omar Infante, Brandon Jones and Freddie Freeman had two hits. Brandon Jones's two singles drove in two runs, while Infante scored two runs. Freeman also drove in two runs.

Jair Jurrjens allowed two runs in the third inning, but only allowed four hits in four innings. Mike Gonzalez, Buddy Carlyle, Kris Medlen and Jerome Gamble all had scoreless innings.

The Braves play the Marlins next.
