Phils Beat Braves, Lead East by 8

August 31st, 2009 by Christian | Filed under General, Phillies.

Reliable righty Joe Blanton pitched seven strong innings and the Phillies took the rubber match from the Braves 3-2, extending their lead in the NL East to eight games. Chase Utley homered – a laser shot to right off Jair Jurrjens, and made two sizzling defensive plays. Brad Lidge picked up the save.
