ATLANTA — Another late night at Turner Field left the Atlanta Braves with more reasons to bemoan an extra-innings loss. Ryan Howard homered and drove in the go-ahead run in Philadelphia's five-run 13th inning, and the Phillies beat the Braves 6-1 on Monday night. The loss left first-place Atlanta (36-33) only one-half game ahead of idle Washington in the NL East.
