Bartolo Colon: Snitker won't commit to Colon in rotation

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

"That's their decision. But overall I felt good".

Howie Kendrick had three hits, including a homer in the fourth.

The Braves are now 24-31 and sit 11.5 games behind the Washington Nationals for first place in what has been a weak National League East Division. A replacement for Colon in the starting rotation is expected to be announced in a couple of days, manager Brian Snitker said. He allowed three runs on eight hits and no walks with four strikeouts. He allowed a homer in the fourth and back-to-back doubles in the sixth.

Matt Kemp and Matt Adams had back-to-back singles with one out against Hector Neris. Kendrick's throw from left field was up the first-base line, preventing a possible play at the plate.

The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Rodriguez had been considered a longshot to return this season. "It doesn't have the same action he had past year and we've got to figure that out", he said.

NOTES: Atlanta placed RHP Bartolo Colon (2-7, 7.78 ERA) on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Colon said Monday night he'd accept any role. The team recalled right-hander Jason Hursh from Double-A Mississippi. Matt Wisler and Aaron Blair both have major league experience, and Sean Newcomb and Lucas Sims have pitched well, although Sims was touched up for six runs in five innings on Monday.

The Braves got Philly for another run in the fifth and again in the seventh, but the Atlanta pen allowed two more in the eighth to put the final touches on their third straight win.

LHP Jaime Garcia (2-3, 3.18 ERA) will try to continue pitching like he has his past three starts as he faces Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Colon, 44, has had a disastrous start to his first season in Atlanta, pitching to a 7.78 ERA with 6.1 K/9, 2.6 BB/9 and a 44.3 percent ground-ball rate through his first 12 starts/59 innings as a fearless. He allowed just one earned run over 21 2/3 innings in that stretch, but was just 1-1 with a no-decision.
