Final: Braves 7, Phillies 1 ❖ Attendance: 27,257
PHILADELPHIA — Things have gone pretty well for the Phillies in May with four straight series wins and has turned their surprising start to the season into a push for first place in the NL East.
But on Friday night, the 10-30 Atlanta Braves exposed the flaws in the Phillies typical winning formula this season. Aaron Nola pitched seven innings, but allowed two home runs while the Phillies bats struggled once again to string together hits in timely fashion. It resulted in a 7-1 loss to the Braves at Citizens Bank Park.
