Freedie Freeman hit a solo homer off closer Hector Neris with one out in the ninth to tie it, and the Braves scored two runs off José Alvarado (5-0) on a wild pitch and passed ball in the 10th.

But Alec Bohm’s RBI single off Chris Martin (0-2) in the bottom half cut it to 3-2. Odubel Herrera followed with a double down the left-field line. Segura then hit a drive to deep left-center.

The Phillies took two of three from the three-time defending NL East champions, including a walkoff win Wednesday night on Luke Williams’ first big league homer with two outs in the ninth.

Zack Wheeler struck out 12 in eight dominant innings and Segura hit an RBI double in the eighth to give the Phillies a 1-0 lead but Freeman's 14th homer erased it. Herrera had a chance to rob Freeman but didn't his jump was too far in front of the fence and the ball fell beyond his glove.

Dansby Swanson started the 10th inning on second base, advanced to third on a bouncer to short and scored on Alvarado’s wild pitch after pinch-hitter Guillermo Heredia walked. Alvarado walked two more batters before a passed ball by third-string catcher Rafael Marchan allowed another run to score.

Harper's single in return ends slump, lifts Phils over Nats

  Harper's single in return ends slump, lifts Phils over Nats PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bryce Harper hit a run-scoring single that stopped an 0-for-18 skid in his return from the injured list, Andrew McCutchen hit a three-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 5-2 on Saturday. Harper was in right field and hit third after missing 11 games with a left wrist injury. “It wasn’t feeling right,” Harper said of his wrist. “It really just wasn’t feeling good when I was swinging or any other activity, really. I feel a lot better.” He was hit by a pitch in the sixth, taking a Joe Ross slider off the top of his left foot, but remained in the game.

Wheeler allowed four singles and no walks in his latest stellar outing. He lowered his ERA to 2.29 with his seventh straight start giving up three runs or less. Wheeler fanned every batter in Atlanta’s lineup except Swanson and recorded double-digit strikeouts for the 13th time in his career and fifth this season.

Braves starter Ian Anderson also was impressive, yielding four hits and fanning four in seven scoreless innings.

The Phillies broke through against A.J. Minter when Herrera lined a double off the right-field fence with out out in the eighth. Herrera flipped his bat and hesitated to watch the ball before running to first and missed an opportunity to reach third when right fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. fumbled the ball.

Segura followed with a double down the left-field line to knock in Herrera.

Devers homers as Red Sox beat Braves 9-5 .
BOSTON (AP) — Rafael Devers homered and drove in three runs, and the Boston Red Sox stopped Atlanta's four-game win streak with a 9-5 victory over the Braves on Wednesday night. Hunter Renfroe also connected for Boston, and Christian Vázquez had three RBIs. Xander Bogaerts walked twice and scored three times. Bogaerts said Devers is locked in. “He can put a team on his back for weeks and months," he said. "He’s not the type of guy who can just do it for a couple of days. He can ride it for a long time. It’s just a credit to the talent and the work that he puts in.
