PHILADELPHIA -- The Braves took advantage of a little help from their opposition. Justin Upton had two hits and three RBIs, and the Atlanta Braves were helped by two straight Ryan Howard errors in a 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Saturday afternoon. Tommy La Stella hit a three-run triple and Chris Johnson drove in two runs for the Braves, who have won four of five. Atlanta trailed 2-0 before tying it in the fourth on two unearned runs. "You make an error and give teams extra opportunities, and sometimes theyll make you pay for it," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We only got two runs out of those errors, but it got us back in the game. You have to take advantage of those. If you give opportunities to good baseball teams, theyre going to get you." Tony Gwynn Jr. and Ben Revere had a pair of hits for the slumping Phillies, who have lost six of eight. Philadelphia scored three runs or less for the 40th time, dropping to 7-33 in those contests. The Phillies also fell to 18-25 at hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park, where they entered Saturday batting .229 as a team. While the offence didnt shine, it was the defence that really let Philadelphia down this time. Howard made two costly errors in the fourth inning, resulting in two unearned runs that allowed the Braves to tie the game at 2. Freddie Freemans hard-hit grounder went through Howards legs and the error put runners on second and third. "It was a possible double-play ball and we wouldve been out of the inning," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "It changed the whole game." The next batter, Upton, hit a medium grounder to first but reached safely when Howard bobbled and then lost control of the ball. Simmons scored on that error and Freeman, who went to third on the play, then reached on Jason Heywards groundout to first. Fans gave a sarcastic cheer when Howard made the putout of Heyward. "We have to tighten up on the defensive end," Sandberg said. Atlanta then went ahead in the sixth on Uptons two-run double off the wall in left. The teams were scheduled to play the nightcap at 7:15, with Atlanta right-hander David Hale (3-2, 2.72) facing Phillies right-hander Sean OSullivan, who is making his 2014 debut after being called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the spot start. Ervin Santana (6-5) snapped a four-game winless streak after allowing two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and one walk in 6 2/3 innings. Santana had lost his last three starts with a 5.89 ERA in those outings. But he was strong after the first two innings against the Phillies, retiring nine straight during one stretch and surrendering just three hits after the second inning. "It was a great effort," Gonzalez said. "We were looking for that kind of outing to be able to save the bullpen." Said Santana, "In the first inning, a couple pitches were up. After that, I just made a good adjustment and kept the ball down for the most part." Roberto Hernandez (3-7) didnt allow a hit through 3 1-3 innings and ended up giving up just three hits in seven innings with two strikeouts and three walks. Two of the four runs he allowed were unearned. "His pitching was better than his line," Sandberg said. "The defence let him down in the fourth inning, but he hung in there and pitched pretty well." The Braves broke the game open in the eighth when they scored five runs off Antonio Bastardo, snapping an 11 1-3 inning scoreless streak for the Philadelphia bullpen. La Stella had the big blow, a bases-clearing triple that pushed the Atlanta lead to 8-2. It was the first career triple for the rookie La Stella, who had two hits in his last 30 at-bats prior to the hit. The Phillies jumped in front 2-0. Gwynn Jr. snapped an 0-for-23 skid by tripling with one out in the first and scored on Howards single to left. It was Gwynns first hit since the June 16 death of his Hall of Fame father. Hernandez helped himself in the second inning when he recorded his first career RBI by singling home Koyie Hill. Notes: Hill, a catcher, was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley Friday after Carlos Ruiz was placed on the 7-day DL with concussion-like symptoms. Philadelphias regular backup catcher, Will Nieves, has been on the DL since June 19 with a right quad strain. . Atlanta C Evan Gattis, who left due to back spasms after striking out in the first inning on Friday night, didnt play. His replacement, Gerald Laird, went 0-for-3. .

Alina Fodorova of Ukraine took third place. Broersen based her gold-medal performance on great high jumping, and finished with 4,830 points, while Theisen-Eaton, from Humboldt, Sask., set a national record of 4,768.The 2016 Cleveland Browns are 0-10, without much room for optimism. Head coach Hue Jackson announced ahead of this years draft that the year would be about rebuilding, and a raft of the franchises best players were released or traded as Jackson accrued 14 draft picks. Corey Coleman and Cody Kessler have impressed in part, but injuries and a lack of surrounding talent has kept the Browns out of the win column.Their losing run was extended on Monday night, when the team conceded 25 unanswered points, losing 28-7 to AFC North opponent Baltimore Ravens. Jackson has been forced to start six different quarterbacks, and despite some hard-fought games - four of Clevelands losses were by less than a touchdown - time is running out for the Browns to avoid the season-long shutout. Browns head coach Hue Jackson is looking at the NFLs first winless season since 2008 There have been 11 teams with winless seasons throughout the history of the NFL, dating back as far as 1922 when the Columbus Panhandles lost all eight of their regular season games. The Detroit Lions are the only franchise still in existence that have had more than one losing season (1942, 2008). But how do they compare to other losing teams, and are the Browns destined to emulate these infamous teams? Sky Live: Browns @ Ravens Cleveland Browns face Baltimore Ravens to kick-off Week 10, live on Sky Sports on Thursday night. 1. 2008 Detroit Lions (0-16)After starting 6-2 the season before, the Lions lost 23 of 24 regular season games to become the first team in NFL history to lose a 16-game season. Similarly to the current crop of Cleveland Browns, the Lions struggled with injuries at quarterback and came to within a score of a win on three different occasions. Head coach Rod Marinelli lost his job after the Lions went 0-16 However, head coach Rod Marinelli couldnt get his side over the line and promptly lost his job as a result. In the resulting draft, the Lions took Matt Stafford with the first pick, but have still not finished top of the AFC North since 1993. 2. 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-14)Starting out as an expansion franchise, the Bucs produced one of the most pitiful offences in NFL history. Averaging nine points a game and shutout five times, including a 42-0 drubbing by the Pittsburgh Steelers, the highest points total Tampa achieved in one game was 20.Out of 28 teams, the 76 Buccaneers ranked last in offence and second last in defence. Their problems went so deep that they lost the first 12 games of the following season too, setting an NFL record for 26 consecutive losses. 3. 2007 Miami Dolphins (1-15)The best thing about the 2007 Dolphins was the 2008 Lions, which made this woeful season old news pretty quickly. After repeatedly stating his intention to stay with the Dolphins for the 2007 season, head coach Nick Saban left to take charge of AAlabamas college programme.dddddddddddd Rookie head coach Cam Cameron took charge, making wholesale changes to the coaching staff as well as the roster, which included the trade of Wes Welker to division rivals the New England Patriots. The Dolphins lost six games by three points or less, and their only win didnt come until week 15 where Miami beat the Baltimore Ravens 22-16 in overtime. The New York Giants beat the Dolphins at Wembley stadium The dismal season, which included the first regular season game at Wembley Stadium, was compounded by the Patriots who went unbeaten throughout the entire season, before eventually losing in the Super Bowl. 4. 2001 Carolina Panthers (1-15)After winning their opening game on the road against the Minnesota Vikings, the Panthers had the makings of a play-off contender, which included rookie wide receiver Steve Smith.However their shortfall was at quarterback, where fourth rounder Chris Weinke was thrown into a starting role, and the Panthers went on to lose 15 consecutive games, two of which went to overtime. The Panthers leading receiver, Donald Hayes, managed just 597 yards and two touchdowns throughout the entire season. Chris Weinke had a tough rookie season as the Carolina Panthers won just once The most damning statistic came in the final week of the season, at home against the New England Patriots where the Panthers only registered 17,000 fans from an attendance of over 71,000. The Panthers lost 38-6, and head coach George Seifert was relieved of his duties. John Fox was then appointed, and the Panthers reached the Super Bowl just two years later for the first time in their history. 5. 2011 Indianapolis Colts (2-14)A year after a Super Bowl appearance, and with Peyton Manning leading the franchise from quarterback, the Colts were primed to have another play-off challenge.However, Manning suffered a season-ending neck injury before week one and the team turned to Kerry Collins, who had retired earlier that summer. The Colts terrible performances, which included a 62-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints, led to them finishing 28th in scoring, dropping from 4th the year before. Andrew Luck was the first round pick in 2012 following a disappointing 2-14 campaign There is a theory that, after a poor start, the Colts joined the Suck for Luck race, losing games in order to secure the first overall pick and the selection of quarterback Andrew Luck. Whether a tactic or a culmination of a terrible 2011 campaign, Luck joined Indianapolis and has made the Pro Bowl in three of his first four seasons.
