Luiz allowed 5 hits and 2 walks along with the run, and struck out 9. The Phillies tacked on a run in the 8th against A.J. Minter. The Braves made it interesting in the 9th with a couple of ground balls up the middle by Freddie Freeman and Kurt Suzuki, but around those singles, Hector Neris struck out 3.
Someone named Nick Pivetta went 6 innings for the Phillies, allowing 5 hits and a walk, and striking out 4. Ender Inciarte had 3 hits, giving him 197 on the season. The Freeze ran down Paul Byrd in the heavily promoted match race.
The Braves close their first season at SunTrust Park at 37 – 44, yet still stand 9 games in front of the Phloatin’ Phils after taking the series 2 games to 1. Doubleheader Monday against the Mets; the first game starts at 4:10.
