PHILADELPHIA -- The Braves followed a familiar pattern -- using timely hitting and stingy pitching -- to complete a four-game sweep of Philadelphia. B.J. Upton tripled and drove in two runs Sunday to lead streaking Atlanta to a 3-2 victory over the Phillies and their first four-game sweep in Philadelphia in 50 years. Gerald Laird had two hits with a double and RBI for the Braves, who won for the sixth time in seven games while ending their road trip 8-3. Atlanta avenged a three-game sweep by Philadelphia June 16-18 at Turner Field. "We had timely hitting and the pitching was really good," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "You cant ask for more than that." It was the Braves first four-game sweep in Philadelphia since Sept. 24-27, 1964, when the franchise was in Milwaukee and their four wins at Connie Mack Stadium contributed to the Phillies infamous season-ending collapse that year. Marlon Byrd hit a pair of solo home runs for the slumping Phillies, who have lost eight of 10 to drop to 10 games under .500. "It didnt go our way," Phillies slugger Ryan Howard said. "The ball didnt bounce our way. It just wasnt meant to be for us in this series." Chase Utley singled in the seventh inning for his 1,500th career hit. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman greeted Utley with applause and a pat on the back, and the crowd of 33,215 gave the Phillies second baseman a standing ovation. There wasnt much else for the home fans to cheer. Philadelphia dropped to 18-27 at Citizens Bank Park and fell to 7-35 when scoring three runs or less as the offence continued to struggle. The Phillies were 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position, finishing the series 3 for 32. "Hitting in the clutch and hitting with men on base is a component we have to get better at," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "We came up short in this series. It couldve been a big point for us." Aaron Harang (7-6) got the victory despite allowing 11 hits in seven innings. He gave up two runs, struck out four and walked two. "Harang battled through some tough innings, gave us a great effort," Gonzalez said. "Hes a wily vet." Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless ninth, but had to work out of a jam for his 24th save in 28 opportunities. Kimbrel got the first two batters out before consecutive singles by Ben Revere and Jimmy Rollins put runners on first and third for Utley. But Utley flew out to right to end the game. "This was a heck of a series," Upton said. "We really played well. Nobody really tried to do too much. It was a little out of character for us not hitting a lot of home runs, but it all came together for us. Now we just have to keep grinding." David Buchanan (4-4), making his eighth start in place of injured left-hander Cliff Lee, allowed three runs on five hits and five walks in five innings to snap his three-game winning streak. The Braves went ahead 2-0 in the second on Uptons two-run triple off the wall in centre. Harang scored on the play after singling to centre with two outs. The pitcher had been 1 for 25 on the season before the hit. After the first of Byrds two solo homers brought Philadelphia within 2-1 in the bottom of the frame, Lairds RBI double plated Tommy La Stella to push Atlantas advantage back to two runs. It was the fourth extra-base hit in the last three games for La Stella, who had two doubles and a triple in Saturdays doubleheader. In the bottom of the frame, Byrd homered into the Philadelphia bullpen to make it a one-run game again. The Phillies threatened in the sixth when they put runners on first and second with nobody out. But Koyie Hills sacrifice bunt attempt resulted in the lead runner being forced out at third, and pinch-hitter John Mayberry Jr. grounded into an inning-ending double play. Philadelphia had runners on first and third with one out in the seventh when Howard grounded into another inning-ending double play. NOTES: Justin De Fratus pitched a scoreless sixth inning to extend his scoreless innings streak to 17. ...

Oklahoma City dominated the first half and led by 22 at the break, but saw its lead shrink to just two points in the fourth quarter.We ask some of Sky Sports Football League TV team to tell us their most memorable play-off final matches and moments. In an exciting weekend of upcoming action, Hull and Sheffield Wednesday face off for a place in the Premier League in Saturdays Sky Bet Championship showdown, while the League One final pits Barnsley and Millwall on Sunday and Mondays League Two finale sees Plymouth take on AFC Wimbledon - you can watch all games live on Sky Sports.From Dean Windass volleying home for his hometown club Hull City to Clive Mendoncas unforgettable hat-trick for Charlton, there have been some iconic play-off final moments over the years. But what have been the highlights for our TV talent? Football League analyst Ian Holloway: QPR 1-0 Derby, 2014Apart from the ones I was directly involved with, Im going to pick QPRs victory over Derby. I lost a play-off final with QPR in 2003 and to see all the Rs fans that day heartbroken was tough, so it was a real thrill for me to see them get their day in the sun at Wembley.The game itself was a bit drab until Gary ONeil got sent-off for QPR and then Derby started to knock it around. It looked only a matter of time before they struck. However, football can produce incredible moments and Bobby Zamora scored a dramatic winner from what was probably QPRs first attack since they went down to 10 men. His first touch was sublime and his second was even better - hammering it into the top corner. I leapt off of my chair and screamed the house down as there was no way coming back from that. Highlights of the 2014 Championship play-off final between QPR and Derby County Sky Sports co-commentator Don Goodman: Blackpool 3-2 Cardiff, 2010Theres been many, many, amazing play-offs over the years. The 5-5 draw between Swindon and Sheffield United in the semi-finals last season was probably the best semi-final, but the most memorable final for me was Ian Holloways Blackpool final against Cardiff. It was the first final I covered where both teams went at it and played without fear, which was totally opposite to the first few finals I commentated on. They were all tense affairs but this one was different - it was a sensational occasion. Highlights of the 2010 play-off final between Blackpool and Cardiff as Ian Holloway led the Seasiders to the Premier Leaguee Sky Sports commentator Bill Leslie: Swansea 4-2 Reading, 2011Ian Holloways Blackpool had opened it all up a year earlier which was fantastic as wed seen a few very nervy 1-0 finals previously, where the team that were less entertaining had progressed.dddddddddddd Swansea continued Blackpools theme in the final a year later with a style of football which was wonderful to watch.What will always stick with me from that game was the Swansea crowd singing Hymns of Arias with Scott Sinclair wheeling away celebrating his hat-trick - it was spine-tingling stuff. Weve had so many teams recently winning promotion that have been on the brink of extinction or financial oblivion. The story arcs that are involved with the Championship final are just tremendous. Highlights of the 2011 Championship play-off final as Brendan Rodgers Swansea beat Reading 4-2 at Wembley Sky Sports commentator Daniel Mann: Leyton Orient 2-2 Rotherham United (3-4 pens), 2013The one that springs to straight into my mind is Rotherhams win over Leyton Orient.It was the game where Steve Evans ran down the touchline celebrating - an act that needs no words!It was an unbelievable set of circumstances - Orient were 2-0 up at half-time and I remember saying on commentary: Dont you dare write Rotherham off.I genuinely felt the comeback was coming. Alex Revell - a former Orient player - led the charge. He scored one off the goalkeeper which was a bit fortuitous and then he took centre stage. He hit this ball - goodness knows how far out he was - and I almost dismissed it as very ambitious but it flew into the net. It was one of those moments that got me emotionally as you do really get into the game when youre telling the story. Ive been told the words I said on commentary were printed on t-shirts made by Rotherham fans.
