Braves Come Back To Beat Phillies And Tie Series

A one-paragraph recap of the Braves' 6-3 win over the Phillies:

Matt Diaz broke out his first multi-hit game since returning from the disabled list on Tuesday night, including two doubles, the second of which drove in Yunel Escobar from first base in the 11th inning for the winning run. Eric Hinske then followed with some added insurance runs in the form of a towering two-run home run. Billy Wagner then came on to pick up his 18th save of the year. Jair Jurrjens pitched great, and really only made two mistakes, but like Derek Lowe last night, those mistakes were with runners on base and produced a maximum return on effort for Philadelphia. The Phillies had only three hits all night, and just two for the first 10 innings. The lead-off walks also hurt Jurrjens, as two of his three bases on balls came around to score.
