PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Cole Hamels had another outstanding outing, and the Philadelphia Phillies took advantage of an error by Jason Heyward to beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 on Monday night, increasing their lead in the NL East to four games.
The two-time NL champion Phillies won their eighth straight game and improved to 42-15 since July 21, when they trailed the Braves by seven games.
Hamels (12-10) allowed one run and six hits, striking out six in eight innings to win his fifth straight start -- a career-best. Brad Lidge finished for his 24th save in 29 chances.
Brandon Beachy (0-1) gave up three runs -- one earned -- and four hits in 4 1-3 innings in his major league debut. He was a late fill-in for Jair Jurrjens, who is still nursing a sore right knee.
