Braves place Colon on disabled list

In the end, the Phillies managed 13 hits against Colon and the Braves bullpen, beating Atlanta 11-4 to take game one of four at SunTrust Park. "That's their decision. But overall I felt good".

Howie Kendrick was 3-for-4 and Freddy Galvis had two hits for the Phillies.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said after Monday's loss to the Phillies that it's undecided as to whether Bartolo Colon will remain in the rotation. But the way his career's been, you'd nearly completely expect him to come out in his next start and allow four runs over five innings. Cesar Hernandez and Odubel Herrera opened the inning with back-to-back doubles.

Atlanta finally got on the board with a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth when Matt Adams and Rio Ruiz scored on a Johan Camargo triple. The veteran righty's struggles have been particularly acute lately, as he's yielded at least seven runs in each of his past three outings. Kendrick's throw from left field was up the first-base line, preventing a possible play at the plate. Rodriguez had been considered a longshot to return this season.

The Atlanta Braves placed right-hander Bartolo Colon on the disabled list on Tuesday with a left oblique strain. "It doesn't have the same action he had a year ago and we've got to figure that out", he said. The team recalled right-hander Jason Hursh from Double-A Mississippi.

He retired eight consecutive batters after giving up a first-inning run and retired the final 11 batters he faced. He has 19 doubles.

LHP Jaime Garcia (2-3, 3.18 ERA) will try to continue pitching like he has his past three starts as he faces Philadelphia on Tuesday.

The 44-year-old Colon (2-7, 7.78) has made 12 starts, but he has not pitched past the sixth inning in his past eight starts.

Foltynewicz pitched seven innings against the Phillies on April 23 and did not figure in the decision when he allowed one run on four hits with nine strikeouts.
