PHILADELPHIA -- The Braves took advantage of a little help from their opposition. Atlanta Braves Jamie Garcia Jersey . Justin Upton had two hits and three RBIs, and the Atlanta Braves were helped by two straight Ryan Howard errors in a 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Saturday afternoon. Tommy La Stella hit a three-run triple and Chris Johnson drove in two runs for the Braves, who have won four of five. Atlanta trailed 2-0 before tying it in the fourth on two unearned runs. "You make an error and give teams extra opportunities, and sometimes theyll make you pay for it," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We only got two runs out of those errors, but it got us back in the game. You have to take advantage of those. If you give opportunities to good baseball teams, theyre going to get you." Tony Gwynn Jr. and Ben Revere had a pair of hits for the slumping Phillies, who have lost six of eight. Philadelphia scored three runs or less for the 40th time, dropping to 7-33 in those contests. The Phillies also fell to 18-25 at hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park, where they entered Saturday batting .229 as a team. While the offence didnt shine, it was the defence that really let Philadelphia down this time. Howard made two costly errors in the fourth inning, resulting in two unearned runs that allowed the Braves to tie the game at 2. Freddie Freemans hard-hit grounder went through Howards legs and the error put runners on second and third. "It was a possible double-play ball and we wouldve been out of the inning," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "It changed the whole game." The next batter, Upton, hit a medium grounder to first but reached safely when Howard bobbled and then lost control of the ball. Simmons scored on that error and Freeman, who went to third on the play, then reached on Jason Heywards groundout to first. Fans gave a sarcastic cheer when Howard made the putout of Heyward. "We have to tighten up on the defensive end," Sandberg said. Atlanta then went ahead in the sixth on Uptons two-run double off the wall in left. The teams were scheduled to play the nightcap at 7:15, with Atlanta right-hander David Hale (3-2, 2.72) facing Phillies right-hander Sean OSullivan, who is making his 2014 debut after being called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the spot start. Ervin Santana (6-5) snapped a four-game winless streak after allowing two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and one walk in 6 2/3 innings. Santana had lost his last three starts with a 5.89 ERA in those outings. But he was strong after the first two innings against the Phillies, retiring nine straight during one stretch and surrendering just three hits after the second inning. "It was a great effort," Gonzalez said. "We were looking for that kind of outing to be able to save the bullpen." Said Santana, "In the first inning, a couple pitches were up. After that, I just made a good adjustment and kept the ball down for the most part." Roberto Hernandez (3-7) didnt allow a hit through 3 1-3 innings and ended up giving up just three hits in seven innings with two strikeouts and three walks. Two of the four runs he allowed were unearned. "His pitching was better than his line," Sandberg said. "The defence let him down in the fourth inning, but he hung in there and pitched pretty well." The Braves broke the game open in the eighth when they scored five runs off Antonio Bastardo, snapping an 11 1-3 inning scoreless streak for the Philadelphia bullpen. La Stella had the big blow, a bases-clearing triple that pushed the Atlanta lead to 8-2. It was the first career triple for the rookie La Stella, who had two hits in his last 30 at-bats prior to the hit. The Phillies jumped in front 2-0. Gwynn Jr. snapped an 0-for-23 skid by tripling with one out in the first and scored on Howards single to left. It was Gwynns first hit since the June 16 death of his Hall of Fame father. Hernandez helped himself in the second inning when he recorded his first career RBI by singling home Koyie Hill. Notes: Hill, a catcher, was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley Friday after Carlos Ruiz was placed on the 7-day DL with concussion-like symptoms. Philadelphias regular backup catcher, Will Nieves, has been on the DL since June 19 with a right quad strain. . Atlanta C Evan Gattis, who left due to back spasms after striking out in the first inning on Friday night, didnt play. His replacement, Gerald Laird, went 0-for-3. . Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason, in town for the NHL Draft at the Wells Fargo Center Friday and Saturday, was in attendance. . Following the second game of Saturdays doubleheader, the Phillies and Braves will conclude their four-game series at 1:35 Sunday afternoon with Atlanta RHP Aaron Harang (6-6, 3.78) facing Philadelphia RHP David Buchanan (4-3, 4.79). Atlanta Braves Bartolo Colon Jersey . At 11:06 of the first period, Neal struck Marchand with his knee when Marchand was down on the ice. Marchand remained in the game. Neal was assessed a kneeing penalty for his hit on Marchand. Ben Revere Jersey .ca has you covered for whos in, whos out and what to expect from all 30 teams. http://www.probaseballonline.net/St-Louis-Cardinals-Cyber-Monday-Randal-Grichuk-Jersey-Black-Friday/ . -- Hee Young Park topped the leaderboard at 8 under Friday in the suspended second round of the Kingsmill Championship.Lake Forest, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Bears formally introduced John Fox as their new head coach on Monday, with the recently dispatched Denver Broncos sideline boss expressing both his gratitude toward his new employers as well as a confidence hell be able to restore the franchise back to its winning ways. This is a great, great honor (and) privilege to be the head coach of the Chicago Bears, said Fox, who mutually parted ways with the Broncos shortly after Denvers upset loss to Indianapolis in an AFC divisional playoff game. To be standing here in the same role as George Halas is pretty remarkable and one I take very seriously. Foxs track record of success in previous stops in Denver and Carolina, where he led both teams to Super Bowl appearances within three years on the job, made him the Bears top choice to replace Marc Trestman. And the soon-to-be 60-year-old was optimistic he could orchestrate a similar turnaround in Chicago. I cant predict how fast it will happen, said Fox. I just believe it will. I cant make you any promises except Imm going to give you everything Ive got. Jason Castro Jersey. That (one Super Bowl) trophy looks pretty lonely out there. Foxs response was more vague when asked about quarterback Jay Cutlers future in the organization, telling reporters he has yet to begin evaluating the roster. It doesnt matter what player (it is), were going to start that process and Im not there yet, he stated. Fox did say that he and Cutler did exchange text messages following the announcement of his hiring, and that hes anticipating meeting the embattled signal-caller. Im looking forward to getting to know Jay, Fox remarked. He did text me, welcomed me to Chicago, was very excited that I was coming here. I just reminded him that the games only fun when we win, and we will, and that I was looking forward to getting to see him. Fox, who amassed a 46-18 record with the Broncos and led Denver to the AFC West title in all four of his seasons at the helm, takes over a Bears team that lost eight of its last 10 games under Trestman to finish at 5-11, the clubs worst record since 2004.
