Johnson, Pendleton hot after Braves lose to Phils

ATLANTA -

ATLANTA (AP) -- Chris Johnson made a headfirst dive into first base but was thrown out to end the game, then argued in the dugout with Atlanta coach Terry Pendleton after the Braves lost to Philadelphia 5-4 Saturday night.
 
The loss dropped Atlanta one game behind St. Louis for the best record in the National League. If they're tied following Sunday's season finale, the Braves will get home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs.
 
Down 5-1, the Braves rallied in the ninth on Justin Upton's three-run homer with two outs. Freddie Freeman singled and Evan Gattis walked to keep the rally going.
 
Johnson hit a grounder to the hole and Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins made a diving stop, hopped up and got the final out.
 
When Johnson got to the dugout, Pendleton grabbed him and there were angry words before they pulled apart.
