July 7, 2013 at 5:12 PM

PHILADELPHIA, July 7 (UPI) -- Jonathan Pettibone struck out six over 5 1/3 innings Sunday and Domonic Brown drove in runs with a homer and a triple in Philadelphia's 7-3 win over Atlanta.

Pettibone (5-3) yielded just one run on five hits en route to the victory, his second in two starts. The rookie right-hander issued one walk and struck out six.

Brown gave the Phils a quick lead with a first-inning RBI triple and then came home on a Delmon Young single to make it 2-0.

His solo homer in the fifth padded Philadelphia's lead to 5-1.

Ben Revere drove in a pair of runs with a three-bagger as Philadelphia claimed the rubber match of a three-game series.

Braves starter Kris Medlen (6-8) was scorched for seven runs (six earned) on eight hits in a 5 1/3-inning effort.

Chris Johnson homered and Brian McCann went 3-for-4 with a run scored for National League East-leading Atlanta.
