ATLANTA (AP) - Jeff Francoeur hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the seventh inning Sunday, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1.
    
Francoeur's seventh home run this season came off Andrew Bailey (3-1), who has allowed 19 earned runs in his last 16 2/3 innings.
    
Mauricio Cabrera (2-0), the fourth of six Atlanta pitchers, pitched a one-hit seventh.
    
Jimmy Paredes entered as a defensive replacement in the seventh and homered against Chris Whitrow in the eighth. Jim Johnson pitched a hitless ninth for his sixth save in nine chances. After Tommy Joseph's leadoff walk, Aaron Altherr grounded into a double play and Carlos Ruiz struck out.
