Chipper Jones: Shame on fans that left the game

ATLANTA -- Chipper Jones poked a little fun at fans who tuned out before his game-winning home run at the end of Sunday night's Braves game.

"Shame on fans that left the game and kudos to those that stayed!" Jones tweeted Sunday. "Never kno when somethin cool is gonna happen like a GW #mammo! Yessir!"

Jones hit the winning homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to cap a five-run rally as the Atlanta Braves stunned the Philadelphia Phillies, 8-7, in the finale of their three-game series.

The Phillies led 7-3 when Jonathan Papelbon (3-6) entered the game with runners on first and second and one out in the ninth. He struck out pinch- hitter Lyle Overbay, but walked Michael Bourn to load the bases.

Martin Prado ripped one down the third base line that went off the glove of Kevin Frandsen for a two-run double. Jones then hammered a 1-1 fastball about three rows deep in right-center field to help the Braves snatch the victory.

Peter Moylan (1-0) was credited with the win after getting John Mayberry Jr. to ground into the final out in the top of the inning.
