ATLANTA (AP) – Chipper Jones hit a go-ahead, three-run double in the fourth inning off Cliff Lee and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 on Friday night in their home opener.

Jones had two hits, giving him 2,500 for his career.

Lee (1-1) couldn’t hold an early 3-0 lead as the Braves scored three runs in the second and then knocked the left-hander out of the game with three in the fourth.

Tim Hudson (2-0) spotted the Phillies three runs before finishing strong. He gave up eight hits and two earned, with no walks in 7 2-3 innings.

The Braves won in the home debut for first-year manager Fredi Gonzalez, who caught the pregame first pitch from his predecessor, Bobby Cox.

Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth for his third save.
