(AP) - Freddie Freeman, Abraham Almonte, Ozzie Albies, Austin Riley and Joc Peterson homered to lead the Atlanta Braves to a 15-3 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies.

That moves the Braves back into a tie with Philadelphia for second place in the National League East.

The Braves chased struggling Phillies starter Vince Velasquez after 2 1/3 innings and six earned runs. Andrew McCutchen went 3 for 4 with a run scored for the Phillies.
