Dallas Keuchel and the Braves bullpen were excellent as Atlanta toughed out a 3-1 win over the Phillies. Tyler Flowers provided all the offense Atlanta would need as he blasted a three-run homer in the fourth inning. Josh Donaldson ended the game with an excellent catch running full speed into the Braves dugout railing, snagging the high popup just as he extended his reach. The Braves decrease their magic number to 8.
The Braves appear to be on the verge of getting veteran outfielder Nick Markakis back from the injured list, with his return potentially coming this weekend in Washington.
