Zack Godley notches his eighth K, as he fans Tyler Flowers to complete striking out the side in the 5th
Jaime Garcia set the tone for the afternoon as he allowed just four hits and one run over seven innings. Phillips provided a pair of RBI doubles and began the key four-run third inning with a two-bagger against Zack Godley, whose ERA rose from 2.58 to 3.09 as he Power plays: Godley recorded a career-high nine strikeouts, but seven of those were recorded after he allowed Kemp and Matt Adams to homer during a four-run third inning. Kemp's three-run shot to left-center field was his first long ball since June 21 and just his fourth extra-base hit since June 17. Adams' solo shot to right-center was just the sixth homer the D-backs right-hander has allowed in 75 2/3 innings this season.
"A guy like Matt [Kemp] is going to get hot, and he has been working at it. He is probably not where he wants to be, but something like today shows he is capable to get hot and carry you [as a team]."
-- Braves manager Brian Snitker
