Phillies rally past Braves

Game 1: 
Phil Niekro gets his 8th win of the season, going 8 2/3 innings as the Braves beat Philadelphia 5-4.  Jerry Royster went 4 for 5 for Atlanta to earn player of the game honors.

Game 2: 
Jim Lonborg goes 6 strong innings to help the Phillies even the series at a game apiece, 4-2.

Game 3:
The Phillies tied the game in the ninth, capitalizing on a Jerry Royster error, and then won it in the tenth by the score of 4-3 as the Braves really squandered a great chance to take the series.  Bob Boone was player of the game as he cracked two homers to pace the Phillies, who are now an impressive 28-12 on the season.  The loss sinks the Braves deeper in the NL West with an 18-24 record.
