Oswalt Pitches Gem, Phils Sweep Braves

PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Roy Oswalt and a pair of relievers combined

on a one-hitter and the NL East-leading Philadelphia Phillies beat

Atlanta 1-0 Wednesday night for their 10th straight win, increasing

their bulge over the Braves to six games.

Raul Ibanez hit an RBI double with two outs in the eighth inning

for the only run, helping the two-time NL champions reduce their

magic number for clinching their fourth straight division title to

four. It was the Phillies’ first home sweep over the Braves since


Oswalt allowed just one hit _ a clean double by Martin Prado in

the fourth _ and one walk in seven scoreless innings.
