News: Phils lose to Braves as Burnett shows off

The Phillies lost Wednesday to the Braves, 3-2.

It was a relatively uninteresting contest. Jeremy Hellickson surrendered two runs on five hits in four innings. Mark Appel walked two, struck out three and gave up a run in two innings. The offense did little, with just Roman Quinn making any highlights (single, stolen base, RBI).
