Braves Vs. Phillies Score Update: Atlanta Ties The Game at Six Runs On A Brian McCann Grand Slam

Things looked bleak for the Atlanta Braves for five innings against the Philadelphia Phillies, but one swing of the bat from Brian McCann turned everything around.

The Philles were up six runs and the Braves were scoreless for much of the game. Roy Halladay was pitching a gem until the bottom of the fifth inning when he began to struggle.

Halladay gave up two runs initially and then loaded the bases for Brian McCann who took Halladay deep to right field for a grand slam which evened the score up at six runs apiece.

It was a great play for Atlanta to get them back into the game but unfortunately McCann was injured during the celebration after being poked in the eye by Michael Bourn.
