Philadelphia fell 3 ½ games behind first-place Atlanta in the NL East. With a 2-1 lead, closer Ian Kennedy retired the first two Colorado batters in the ninth. After Colton Welker singled, McMahon homered on an 0-2 pitch. Hilliard followed with a long drive to right.It was Kennedy’s third blown save of the season
