ATLANTA (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies ended rookie Tommy Hanson's streak of 19 consecutive scoreless innings, beating Atlanta 4-2 Sunday and damaging the Braves' faint NL wild-card hopes.
Brad Lidge pitched another shaky ninth inning but posted his 31st save. The NL East-leading Phillies took two of three in the series.
The Braves began the day 4½ games behind wild-card leader Colorado.
There was a rain delay of 1 hour, 51 minutes in the middle of the fifth inning, ending Cliff Lee's start for the Phillies.
