PHILADELPHIA - The Uptons used their bats and their arms to lift the Atlanta Braves to the win.Brothers B.J. and Justin Upton each homered and had an outfield assist, and the Braves held on for a 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.Justin Upton also doubled for the Braves, who won for just the third time in 15 games and are 6-18 in a forgettable September.According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Uptons are the first brothers to homer and record an outfield assist in the same game since 1900.Thats one feat right there, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. Thats really something special. They can share that for the rest of their lives. Both guys are so talented on both sides of the ball.Ryan Howard had three hits, including his 23rd homer, and two RBIs for Philadelphia.Atlantas Aaron Harang (12-12) gave up two runs and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings.Its really nice to finish the year strong and feel healthy, Harang said. Its been very gratifying. The first day of spring training I didnt even have a job.Craig Kimbrel pitched out of a jam in the ninth to earn his 46th save in 50 chances.Marlon Byrd led off with a single and Domonic Brown reached when shortstop Andrelton Simmons booted a double-play ball. Tony Gwynn Jr.s sacrifice moved the runners to second and third with one out. Kimbrel struck out Freddy Galvis before walking pinch-hitter Darin Ruf to load the bases.Ben Revere lined out sharply to Simmons to end the game. Revere flung his helmet into foul territory after Simmons ranged to his right to make the catch.Justin Upton doubled and scored in the second, and B.J. Upton gave Atlanta a 2-1 lead when he led off the third with a line drive to right for his 12th homer of the season.Justin Upton threw out Chase Utley in the fourth from left field, and B.J. Upton nailed Wil Nieves trying to score from second in the fifth.Its a pretty cool thing, B.J. Upton said. You really dont think about things like that. The big thing is to win the ballgame and finish strong.Howard connected in the second, and then had a tying RBI single in the sixth. But Justin Upton put Atlanta in front for good with a majestic, two-run shot to left in the seventh off A.J. Burnett (8-18). It was the 29th homer for Justin Upton, who has a career-best 102 RBIs.It was the third time this season that the Upton brothers homered in the same game and the sixth time in the last two years.Burnett became the first Phillies pitcher to record 18 losses since Hall of Famer Steve Carlton went 13-20 in 1973, allowing four runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings. The veteran right-hander has a player option to return in 2015 at $12.75 million, though he has been ambivalent about it during a disappointing season.Obviously a frustrating year, Burnett said. You come over here and expect to make an impact and you make the wrong impact. I gave them all I had. Its been one of those years where not a lots gone right.He walked three batters, ending the season with 96 walks. Besides entering Saturday tied for the most losses in the majors, Burnett led baseball in walks.Burnett said he would have hernia surgery next week, and then begin mulling whether to return in 2015.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: LHP Alex Wood (left forearm strain) was scratched from his scheduled start for Sundays season finale.

Roquan Smith Bears Jersey . - Mike Magee converted two penalty kicks in a 10-minute span of the first half and the Chicago Fire beat Sporting Kansas City 2-1 on Sunday. Allen Robinson Bears Jersey . Pospisil, whose season-ending goal is to improve his ATP Tour ranking enough to qualify for one of the 32 seedings at Januarys Australian Open, dominated Karlovic in 59 minutes. The world No. 40 never faced a break point and limited the big mans threatening ace count to a mere eight, while striking five key aces of his own. http://www.probearsonline.com/. And though his comeback night didnt quite go to script, Bryant couldnt help reflecting on the work necessary to get back on that court -- and all the months of steady labour ahead to reclaim his game. Bryant had nine points and eight rebounds in his season debut, but Amir Johnson scored a career-high 32 points in the trade-depleted Toronto Raptors 106-94 victory over Los Angeles on Sunday night.
