ATLANTA (AP) - Vance Worley combined with four relievers on a
three-hitter and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the punchless
Braves 7-0 Saturday to drop Atlanta into a tie for the NL wild-card
Atlanta's loss and San Diego's 4-2 win over San Francisco left
the Braves and Padres tied for the wild card with one game left in
the regular season.
The Braves' hopes of advancing to the postseason in Bobby Cox's
final season as manager will be on the line against the Phillies on
Sunday. Atlanta's Tim Hudson is scheduled to face Cole Hamels.
Phillies manager Charlie Manuel, preparing his rotation for the
playoffs, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Hamels will
pitch only two innings.
