Hanson Loses as Phillies Take 2 of 3 from Braves

ATLANTA (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies ended rookie Tommy
Hanson's streak of 19 consecutive scoreless innings, beating Atlanta
4-2 Sunday and damaging the Braves' faint NL wild-card hopes.

Brad Lidge pitched another shaky ninth inning but posted his 31st save. The NL East-leading Phillies took two of three in the series.

The Braves began the day 4½ games behind wild-card leader Colorado.

There was a rain delay of 1 hour, 51 minutes in the middle of the fifth inning, ending Cliff Lee's start for the Phillies.
