PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Emilio Bonifacio led off the game with home run and Freddie Freeman added an RBI single in the first, and the Atlanta Braves finished a disappointing late-season collapse with a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.
The Braves finished with just three hits - all before Phillies starter Cole Hamels (9-9) could record an out.
Five relievers stymied the Phillies, holding them to just four hits, two by Hamels.
James Russell, an emergency starter in place of injured Alex Wood, started for the first time since 2011 and pitched four innings of two-hit ball. Luis Avilan (4-1) picked up the win in relief, throwing two scoreless innings. Craig Kimbrel notched his 47th save.
