Jean Segura hit a walk-off two-run single to left field in the bottom of the 10th inning as the host Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday.

Segura finished with three hits and three RBIs, and Odubel Herrera added a pair of doubles while scoring the winning run for the Phillies, who won on a walk-off in consecutive games.

Zack Wheeler tossed eight shutout innings and gave up four hits, all singles, struck out 12 and walked none while registering his 13th career game with at least 10 strikeouts.

Wheeler threw 105 pitches 79 for strikes.

Hector Neris suffered his third blown save and Jose Alvarado (5-0) picked up the win despite allowing two unearned runs. The Braves took a 3-1 lead in the 10th on a wild pitch by Alvarado and a passed ball by third string catcher Rafael Marchan.

Freddie Freeman, who had two hits, tied the game at 1-1 with a solo home run in the ninth inning.

Braves starter Ian Anderson was solid in seven scoreless innings as he allowed four hits and no runs while striking out four and walking one.

Chris Martin (0-2) took the loss after giving up three runs in the 10th.

Dansby Swanson led off the fifth with a single, but with one out, Ender Inciarte lined out to Rhys Hoskins at first, who then doubled off Swanson to end the inning.

Freeman opened the seventh with a single and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Freeman became the first Braves player to reach scoring position.

Herrera doubled off the fence in right with one out in the eighth. Segura then hit an RBI double down the left field line for a 1-0 lead. Bryce Harper flied out to shallow left and Hoskins popped out to shortstop.

Ronald Acuna Jr. began the ninth by striking out swinging. Freeman then tied the game with a solo home run off Neris, just above Herrera’s glove and over the fence in center.

Alec Bohm contributed an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th.
