Ender Inciarte went 5-for-5 with one triple, four RBIs and one walk. He joined Kenny Lofton (1997) as the only Braves on record (going back to 1913) to have as many as three five-hit games in a season. Only three players in MLB have done it since Lofton: Ichiro Suzuki (2004, four times), Charlie Blackmon (2014) and Yunel Escobar (2015).

Phillies right-hander Jerad Eickhoff left the game in the third inning because of an apparent injury. He allowed six hits and six runs in two-plus innings as the Phillies (49-82) officially clinched their fifth consecutive losing season.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Dickey dialed in: Braves knuckleballer R.A. Dickey continues to dominate the Phillies. He allowed just seven hits and one run, throwing 121 pitches in eight innings. He struck out nine. He is 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA (two earned runs in 22 innings) in three starts this season against the Phillies.

Phillies rookies keep it going: Rhys Hoskins extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a single to left field in the seventh inning. It was his first game since Aug. 22 without an extra-base hit or RBI. Jorge Alfaro later singled to score Hoskins for the Phillies’ only run. Alfaro has reached base safely in all 12 of his starts this season.
