Phils slam door on Braves
Phils' playoff hopes alive
The Phillies enjoyed a lead for most of the game, thanks to David Bell, who homered, and Jimmy Rollins, who singled to extend his hit streak and added a pair of doubles and two RBIs. But the Braves rallied to force extras. In the 10th, the Phils loaded the bases, setting the stage for Ryan Howard's second grand slam of the year.

Braves fall in extras
First baseman Adam LaRoche enjoyed a four-RBI night on Wednesday, drawing a walk with the bases loaded in the fifth inning and belting a game-tying three-run homer off Philadelphia's Ryan Madson in the seventh, a blast that forced extra frames. But reliever John Foster gave up a game-winning grand slam in the top of the 10th, keeping Atlanta's magic number at six.
