PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jean Segura hit a two-run single high off the left-field fence in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3.

Freddie 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 Jose Alvarado on a wild pitch and passed ball in the 10th.

But Alec Bohm’s RBI single off Chris Martin 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.

He slowly jogged around first and watched Herrera dive headfirst across the plate for the winning run.
