Heyward leads Braves to 7-1 win over Phillies

ATLANTA (AP) - Jason Heyward had a career-high five hits, including a leadoff home run, and the Braves rode a five-run first inning to post a 7-1 win over the Phillies on Thursday night.

The win pulls the Braves even with the idle Cardinals at 94-65 for the best record in the National League with three games to play. The Braves won the season-series against the Cardinals and would win the NL's No. 1 seed if the teams finish tied.

Rookie David Hale (1-0) won his first MLB game in his second career start, allowing one run in six innings while striking out five. Phillies Rookie Tyler Cloyd (2-7) took the loss after giving up seven runs and eight hits in one inning.

Evan Gattis had two hits and three RBIs for the Braves.

Jimmy Rollins went 3 for 4 for the Phillies, who have lost seven of eight.
