ATLANTA, June 6 (UPI) -- J.D. Drew hit a three-run homer off Kevin Millwood in a six-run fifth Sunday to lead the Atlanta Braves to a 6-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Millwood, who spent his first six seasons with Atlanta, had given up just two hits and a walk before coming undone by two errors in the fifth. Andruw Jones led off the inning with a single and Dewayne Wise bunted up the third base line. Third baseman Tomas Perez charged for the ball and uncorked a wild throw, allowing Jones to score.

Chase Utley made a throwing error as Wise went to second. Millwood walked Mark DeRosa and yielded a single to Julio Franco. Two outs later, Nick Green had an RBI single and Drew followed with his homer.

Millwood (4-4) gave up six runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings. Atlanta starter Jaret Wright (4-5) surrendered four runs in the first two innings.
