ATLANTA -- A trio of 25-and-under relief pitchers came through in the late innings for Charlie Manuel and the Phillies.

"I think I put them in the fire, didn't I?" Manuel asked.
"It's neat how it worked out, all of us have come together," said Stutes, 24. "I think it's helped us all grow up."
Uggla gave Stutes and the Phillies a scare when he hit a long fly ball foul before striking out.
"[Stutes] stayed with it and came right back," Manuel said. "That was good."
With pinch-runner Jason Heyward on second base in the ninth, Madson struck out Uggla to end the game.
Howard led off the eighth with a double to right. With one out, Ibanez singled to right. Joe Mather's throw beat Howard to the plate but short-hopped catcher Brian McCann, who couldn't hold on as Howard scored the go-ahead run.
"It's a classic oblique, and that's not good," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
Beachy said was injured when he struck out swinging in the bottom of the second inning. He was pulled during his warmup tosses before the third.
Martinez had four strikeouts. He delivered the surprise of the night when he drove in two runs with a double off Cole Hamels in the fifth for the first hit and RBI of his career. The double, which drove in Alex Gonzalez and Mather, tied the game at 3.
"He tomahawked a high fastball," Manuel said. "That was actually a pretty good piece of hitting."
With two outs in the sixth, Gonzalez singled and moved to third on Mather's double. With pinch-hitter Diory Hernandez at the plate, Hamels threw a wild pitch, allowing Gonzalez to score for a 4-3 lead.
O'Flaherty and McCann began to leave the field on what they believed was a called third strike on Victorino, but umpire David Rackley called the pitch a ball. Victorino then tied it with his single to center, leaving McCann complaining to the umpire.
- Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell returned from his two-week suspension for making homophobic comments and crude gestures toward fans in San Francisco.
- Victorino has a 15-game hitting streak.
- Martinez was 0 for 8 in his career at the plate before his double.
- Prado was thrown out trying to steal second to end the third inning. The Braves are last in the major leagues with only six stolen bases -- on 18 attempts. Prado has been caught on four of his five attempts.
- LHP Mike Minor and RHP Rodrigo Lopez are the top candidates to be recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett if Beachy is placed on the disabled list, as expected.
- Heyward missed his third straight with inflammation in his right shoulder, but he entered the game as a pinch-runner in the ninth.
