PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Dan Uggla hit a tiebreaking three-run double in the seventh after Tim Hudson blew a five-run lead and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-6 Wednesday night.
Ryan Howard's three-run homer off Hudson during a five-run fifth tied it at 6, but the wild card-leading Braves scored four runs after Antonio Bastardo (2-4) got the first two outs in the seventh.
Michael Bourn had three hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in three, and Uggla also had three hits.
Chad Durbin (4-1) tossed a perfect sixth to earn the win.
Hudson allowed six runs and six hits in 4 1-3 innings. It was his second-shortest outing of the season.
The Braves chased Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick in the fourth, taking a 6-1 lead that seemed insurmountable with Hudson on the mound. The three-time All-Star righty is 132-3 when given a lead of three or more.
But Jimmy Rollins got a rally started in the fifth with an RBI double. Domonic Brown followed with an RBI double t...
BEST OF MAXIM
Theyve been maligned, and deservedly so at times, but Braves relievers have done little wrong of late.
The Braves have been playing mix and match with the guys in the bullpen throughout this season, but theyve finally put together a Steady Seven. Im not ready to call them the Spectacular Seven yet, and especially not the overused Magnificent Seven. No, steady does it.
Dan Uggla is showing signs of life.
He had a two-RBI game on July 30. There was another one on Aug. 4.
And then there was his two-hit game on Monday.
Uggla, to borrow an unflattering nickname from online commentators, is still Struggla, but he has a pulse.
For Braves fans, there is hope that he is emerging from another one of his funks and will add another potent bat for the...
The Phils still can’t find ways to beat the Braves, as they once again fall to Atlanta, 6-1.
The Braves took the lead in the third as, with two men on, and with two men out, Freddie Freeman hits a two-run double, knocking in Michael Bourn, who had earlier walked, then stopped at second base on Martin Prado’s single, and Prado, who had just singled, giving the Braves a 2-0 lead...
Thursday's day off allowed manager Fredi Gonzalez to give everyone in the Braves' rotation a extra day of rest, always welcome at this time of year. It's especially welcome now, as the Braves begin a streak of 20 games in 20 days. Because of that, there's an outside chance that Gonzalez may go to a six-man rotation for that stretch of games. It depends on right...
If you haven't already, of course. :)
Attention fans: Your popcorn is not safe from Jeff Francoeur - I miss this goofball.

When Tommy Hanson returns from the DL, the Braves will consider using a 6-man rotation. Should they?
Dan Ugga’s looks to be emerging from a deep and prolonged slump.
The Philadelphia Phillies are no longer the team to beat in the National League East and the Braves know it. They may not need to beat the Phillies, but that hasn’t stopped them from kicking the Phillies while they are down. Monday night’s win against the Phillies was the Braves’ 7th consecutive win against...
The pesky Braves just can't lose, can they? Other than last night's gem of a game from Hamels, the Braves have dominated the Phillies all season. Tonight, they showed great patience at the plate and got Kyle Kendrick to exit the game early, just to tear up the Phils' bullpen. In the rubber match of this series, Phillies fans were caught with their hands shielding their...
Cole Hamels five-hit the Braves as the Phils finally end their losing streak with Atlanta, winning 3-0.
The Phils took a quick 1-0 lead in the first as Dom Brown hits an RBI double, knocking in Jimmy Rollins, who had started the inning off with a double. Two batters later, with Brown still on second base, and now with one man out, Ryan Howard hits a two-run home run, his fifth home...
Final: Phillies 6, Braves 12.
WP: Chad Durbin (4-1, 3.07 ERA) LP: Antonio Bastardo (2-4, 5.45 ERA)
Tonight's game featured a series of highs-and-lows for the Philadelphia Phillies. The bottom of the 1st was positive in the fact that Jimmy Rollins picked up his 40th career leadoff home run, in which he homered off of opposing starter Tim Hudson to the first row in right field...

Kyle Kendrick appeared to find his place in the bullpen, but with the departure of Joe Blanton, he found himself back in the rotation. Although he only spent ...
Having made all three of his starts on the road since getting called up, Matt Harvey is looking forward to making his Citi Field debut.
The 23-year-old rookie, though, appears to have a tough task at hand with the surging Atlanta Braves coming to town.
Coming off their first home win in over a month, the New York Mets try to avoid a sixth consecutive defeat to the Braves as these...
Paul Maholm pitched a three-hitter in his second start for Atlanta and the Braves got two-run homers from Jason Heyward and Dan Uggla to beat the New York Mets 4-0 Friday night.
Heyward connected in the first inning to help spoil Matt Harvey's home debut with the Mets. Uggla went deep in the eighth off reliever Josh Edgin as Atlanta won for the 13th time in 16 games.
