The Phillies hosted the NL East leading Atlanta Braves last night in one of the stranger games you'll see. Trailing 1-0 in the sixth inning Evan Gattis hit a two-run home run to give the Braves a 2-1 lead. Gattis, Dan Uggla and Andrelton Simmons went back-to-back-to-back in the eighth to make it 5-1. The Phillies responded with five runs in the bottom of the eighth capped off by Domonic Brown's three-run home run to give Philadelphia a 6-5 lead. Atlanta responded in the top half of the ninth on an Uggla grand slam to make it 9-6 Braves and they'd go on to win by that final. More here.
The Sixers hosted the Boston Celtics for their last home game of the season. The Sixers shot 54.4% from the field but just 3-for-12 (25.0%) from beyond the arc. Michael Carter-Williams improved his play once again scoring 21 points, grabbing 14 rebounds and dishing out six assists while contributing on the defensive end with four steals and two blocks leading the Sixers to a 113-108 victory.

Scott Hartnell received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for spearing in Sunday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes. All five-minute majors are reviewed by the league and this review came from new NHL Vice President of Player Safety Stephane Quintal. Quintal took over for Brendan Shanahan who left the role last week to become the new president of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The league ruled the spear was not suspension worthy but he was fined $5,000. More here.
