Philadelphia Batters Atlanta 7-1.

Once again, Derek Lowe just didn't have it.

Another key game, another bad loss. The Phillies battered Braves starter Derek Lowe and Atlanta's bats were nowhere to be found as Philadelphia beat Atlanta 7-1. 

Lowe struggled from the start, giving up a first inning home run to Chase Utley to make it a 1-0 game early. 

Philly added to its lead in the third inning, as Carlos Ruiz doubled to start the frame and Roy Oswalt reached on a sacrifice bunt that advanced Ruiz to third. Jimmy Rollins followed with a single, scoring Ruiz to make it a 2-0 game and putting runners on first and second.

Back-to-back sacrifice flies advanced Oswalt to third and scored him to up the lead to 3-0. 

Shane Victorino singled to start the top of the fourth inning, and he advanced to third on a single from Raul Ibanez. Victorino came in to score on a sacrifice fly from Placido Polanco. Polanco's fly ball upped the Phillies lead to 4-0.

Rollins singled to start the fifth inning and chased Lowe from the game. Lowe finished with a line of 4 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 2 K.

Arodys Vizcaino followed in relief of Lowe and gave up a two-run homer to Hunter Pence two batters later. Pence's blast made it a 6-0 game. 

Rollins added a home run off Julio Teheran in the seventh inning to make it a 7-0 game. Martin Prado homered in the bottom of the ninth, a solo shot, to keep Atlanta from being shutout. 

St. Louis and Houston are currently tied at 5 in the fifth inning in Houston, so let's go Astros.
