Phillies Beat Braves Behind Late Castellanos Homer, Robertson Save

Phillies end 5-1 trip with a feel-good day from Castellanos and Robertson originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

ATLANTA -- Nick Castellanos raised his right hand in triumph and gave it a little pump as he rounded first base. In the dugout, his teammates went a little nuts.

It's been a difficult first season in Philadelphia for the big free-agent addition, but all the grind and all the stress seemed to vanish with one swing under the hot Georgia sun Wednesday afternoon.

Castellanos' first homer in more than a month, a tie-breaking, two-run shot to center with two outs in the top of the eighth, lifted the Phillies and Zack Wheeler to a huge 3-1 win over the Atlanta Braves.
