Charlie Morton turned in an excellent performance, but the Atlanta Braves were unable to put together enough offense in a 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Morton tossed six shutout innings and exited with a 1-0 lead, but Dylan Lee and Collin McHugh allowed three runs in the eighth to snap Atlanta’s four-game winning streak.
