TODAY'S FEATURE STORYBURNETT, REVERE, HELP PHILLIES BEAT BRAVES! A.J. Burnett, using a shorter stride, kept the Braves off the scoreboard,
allowing three hits over seven innings. Although he didn't figure in the
decision at Citizens Bank Park, where the Phillies picked up a 1-0
victory on Ben Revere's RBI single in the eighth, he played a key role
as his team took its lone win over the NL East leaders in this series.
Burnett was sharp, getting 13 of his 21 outs on ground balls, mostly
on sinkers to righthanded hitters. The Braves' only threat came in the
third, but, with runners on first and third, Burnett got Freddie Freeman
to ground out to end the inning.

Cole Hamels could be just days away from making his 2014 debut,
Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said. Proefrock
said Wednesday afternoon before the Phillies-Braves game at
Citizens Bank Park that Hamels will make a rehab start for the
Clearwater Threshers Thursday night against the Lakeland Flying
Tigers in Clearwater, Fla. Proefrock said Hamels, who has missed
the first two weeks of the season with biceps tendinitis, could very
well open the season at some point during the Phillies' four-game
series against the Dodgers in Los Angeles starting Monday.
