La Stella, Wood lead Braves' win over Phillies
By George Henry/Associated Press

Tommy La Stella drove in three runs and Chris Johnson hit a two-run homer to back a strong start by Alex Wood and help the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-2 Sunday.

The Braves have won of five of seven to remain tied for first place with Washington in the NL East.

Wood (7-7) allowed three hits and one run with eight strikeouts in six innings to win for the first time four starts.

The first five innings were played in a steady drizzle before heavy rain caused a 1 hour, 39-minute delay in the middle of the sixth.
Philadelphia took a 1-0 lead in the second on John Mayberry Jr.'s sixth homer, but the Braves went up 2-1 in the bottom half of the inning on Johnson's seventh homer.
