Braves cut magic number to 2 in comeback win  

The Braves took another step toward a National League East title as they claimed a win over the Phillies on Friday night at SunTrust Park. Ozzie Albies fueled a five-run seventh with a home run, and Johan Camargo capped it with a two-run single. The Braves are 7 1/2 games in front of the Phillies, and their magic number stands at two. Wilson Ramos and Jose Bautista drove in runs to put the Phillies ahead, 4-1, in the seventh, but Pat Neshek and Luis Avilan struggled in the bottom of the inning.
