PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Freshly chosen All-Star Domonic Brown homered, tripled and drove in two runs Sunday, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over the Atlanta Braves 7-3.
 
Ben Revere hit a two-run triple for Philadelphia, which took two of three from the NL East-leading Braves.
 
Chris Johnson homered and Brian McCann got three hits for Atlanta, which has lost 10 of its last 15 road games. McCann finished 9 for 12 in the series and is batting .512 (22 for 43) over his last 11 games.
 
Jonathan Pettibone (5-3) allowed one run on five hits in 5 1-3 innings while tying his career high with six strikeouts against one walk. The Phillies used five relief pitchers on a hot day that began with a gametime temperature of 95 degrees.
 
Kris Medlen (6-8) gave up a season-high six earned runs in 5 1-3 innings.
