PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Tom Glavine pitched 5 2-3 effective innings
to earn his first win for Atlanta in six years and the Braves held
on for an 8-6 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday
night.
Chipper Jones, Yunel Escobar and Kelly Johnson each hit solo
homers and Brian McCann drove in three runs to support Glavine
(1-1), who hadn't won a game with the Braves since beating the
Phillies on Sept. 19, 2002.
Blaine Boyer got the last four outs for his first career save.
Chase Utley hit his major league-leading 14th homer and Ryan
Howard also connected for Philadelphia.
Meanwhile, the Braves teed off on Brett Myers (2-4).
