ATLANTA (AP) — Ryan Howard capped a big series by driving in two runs with three hits and the Phillies battered Aaron Harang and the Braves 10-5 on Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep.

Howard, who hit homers in each of the first two games of the series, drove in a run with a double in the Phillies’ five-run second inning. He added a run-scoring single in the fifth. He had five hits, four walks and six RBIs in the series.

Marlon Byrd drove in three runs with three hits, including a homer.

Evan Gattis hit a two-run homer in Atlanta’s four-run first inning off Roberto Hernandez (3-5). Ryan Doumit also homered and hit a two-run single for Atlanta.

The two Atlanta homers were not enough to overcome the Phillies’ season-high 18 hits. Five Phillies had three hits.
