    When the Phillies begin a nine-game road trip Friday in Atlanta, they will get another crack at Chipper Jones, baseball's hottest hitter. In two games against the Phillies this year -- on May 13-14 -- Jones pounded five hits.

    Phillies probable pitcher

    Jamie Moyer

    • LHP
    • (6-3) 4.65 ERA
    Phillies: Moyer earned his team-leading sixth win on June 1 against the Marlins. Moyer allowed two early home runs to Florida's Mike Jacobs, falling behind by four runs. But the veteran lefty battled back, lasting seven innings, striking out three and walking none to earn the win with a little help from his offense. The Phillies' offense has been particularly helpful to Moyer lately. In his last six starts, Moyer has received an average of about 10 runs of support.

    Braves probable pitcher

    Tim Hudson

    • RHP
    • (7-4) 3.01 ERA
    Braves: Hudson left during the seventh inning of Sunday's game with a strained left hamstring, and was reevaluated by Braves doctors on Monday in Atlanta. Before exiting, Hudson allowed four runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and struck out three in six innings. Hudson allowed a home run in the second and third inning, the third time in four starts he has given up two homers in a game. Hudson walked three on Sunday, and it was only the third time this season that he has issued three or more walks in a game.

    Hail to the Victorino (37-26) (32-30)

    Phillies 4, Braves 3 (10)

    Shane shines in win

    Shane Victorino tripled and scored the Phillies' first run, then drove in the go-ahead run in the 10th. The Braves threatened in the top of the inning against closer Brad Lidge, but Victorino gunned down the potential tying run at home plate with a strike from center field.

    Braves fall in extras

    Tim Hudson shut down the Phillies for 7 2/3 innings and Brian McCann's two-run homer in the sixth put the Braves ahead, but the bullpen couldn't hold the lead. Atlanta threatened with a run in the 10th, but Gregor Blanco was thrown out at home trying to score the tying run.
