Beachy getting back on track

Beachy looks much more comfortable in 2nd start of season

(Continued)

Justin De Fratus replaced Diekman and Uggla hit a bounding ball to short that looked like it could be a double play, but Uggla was safe at first when Chase Utley’s relay pulled an extended Kevin Frandsen off the bag. Utley withstood a strong takeout slide from Janish, who made contact with the Philadelphia second baseman.

“Unnoticed by a lot of people is the way Janish went into second against Utley,” Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “If you go in tiptoeing there, Utley gets a clean look.”

Said Janish, “The ball was hit slow enough and I was able to disrupt the play. Fortunately, it helped us win the game.”

Gonzalez also credited Uggla for his effort on the play.

“Uggla really busted it down the line,” he said. “The winning run came on a double-play ball, but our two runners made a difference.”

John Mayberry Jr. homered for Philadelphia, which has lost four in a row and 12 of 13.

“Obviously, this is very frustrating,” Mayberry said. “It can flip and come back around just as easily. We’re going to remain confident until the end.”

The Phillies did threaten in the 12th off Kimbrel, as Rollins reached second with two outs on a fielder’s choice and wild pitch. But Kimbrel struck out pinch-hitter Laynce Nix to record his 23rd straight save.

“It seems like we have a hard time getting going,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. “We’re having a hard time playing good enough or doing enough to win. We’re playing the game out and staying there with it. We’re just getting beat right now.”

Justin Upton homered for the Braves.

The Phillies took a 3-0 lead on Utley’s RBI groundout in the first and Mayberry’s two-run homer in the second. Upton brought the Braves within two runs with a solo shot in the third before Atlanta’s three-run fifth.

John Lannan allowed two earned runs and four hits in 4 1-3 innings with a two walks and no strikeouts. Lannan was pitching on three days’ rest after rookie Jonathan Pettibone, who was scheduled to start Saturday, was placed on the DL on Friday with a right shoulder strain.

“Everybody has to go through it and learn from it and move on,” Lannan said of the skid.
