Newcomb gets rare start for streaking Braves vs. Phils

Atlanta left-hander Sean Newcomb will make his first start since April 13 on Saturday when the Braves face the visiting Philadelphia Phillies in search of their ninth consecutive win.

The Braves scored three times in the ninth inning to stun the Phillies 9-8 in the series opener on Friday, defeating Philadelphia for the first time in four tries this year. Atlanta owns its first eight-game win streak since May 17-25, 2013.

The series between the National League East rivals continues at SunTrust Park, with Newcomb (1-0, 2.59 ERA) going up against Philadelphia ace Aaron Nola (6-1, 4.58).
