Ruf 's homer lifts Phillies over Braves 3-2

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Darin Ruf hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the eighth inning to back a strong outing by starting pitcher Cole Hamels and lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 3-2 victory and 3-game sweep over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Hamels (7-13) gave up just two hits, both homers, and two runs over eight innings. He struck out nine and walked two. He retired the side in order four times.

B.J. Rosenberg earned his first career save with a perfect ninth inning.

David Carpenter (3-1) took the loss for allowing Ruf's homer in the eighth.

Evan Gattis hit two solo home runs for the Braves. His first, in the second inning, traveled 480 feet to center field. In the seventh, he tied the game with a long ball that went deep into the left-field bleachers. It was his first career multi-homer game.
