BY foxsports • September 4, 2016

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Adonis Garcia scored the winning run in the 10th inning after homering twice earlier in the game, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-4 on Saturday night.

Garcia scored from third on a check-swing ground ball by Tyler Flowers for a 5-4 lead. First baseman Ryan Howard threw home on the slow roller, but Garcia beat the force play.

Jed Bradley (1-0) got the win in his major league debut. He threw one scoreless inning and had a strikeout.

Mauricio Cabrera got his fourth save in four opportunities.

Edubray Ramos (1-2) allowed two runs and one hit after allowing a leadoff walk to Garcia.

Maikel Franco had four hits for the Phillies, including three doubles, drove in a run and made a sensational diving play at third base to rob Flowers of a hit.
