Sept. 1, 2012 at 10:56 PM

ATLANTA, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Cliff Lee pitched seven shutout innings and Jimmy Rollins went 3-for-5 with a homer Saturday in the Philadelphia Phillies' 5-1 win over Atlanta.

Lee (4-7) logged his second straight win, baffling the Braves on five hits while walking one and striking out five. The left-hander threw 67 of his 93 pitches for strikes in the gem.

The hurler also knocked in a run by drawing a bases-loaded walk.

Rollins' solo shot in the third inning staked the Phillies to a 2-0 lead.

Chase Utley, John Mayberry and Ty Wigginton also provided RBI for the Phillies, who clinched their three-game set.

Atlanta's Tim Hudson (13-5) was knocked around for his first loss since July 1, a span of 10 starts. The right-hander allowed five runs on nine hits in a five-inning effort.

Martin Prado homered for the National League wild card-leading Braves, who lost for the 10th time in 14 games.
