ATLANTA (AP) - Chris Johnson says he has apologized to Braves first-base coach Terry Pendleton for throwing his helmet in the dugout following Atlanta's 5-4 loss to the Phillies on Saturday night.

Johnson grounded out to shortstop Jimmy Rollins to end the game. Johnson was out on a head-first slide at first base. He remained face down for a few seconds before returning to the dugout and flipping his helmet toward the bench.

Pendleton twice grabbed Johnson's jersey with both hands, pulling the third baseman close to him. The two exchanged words.

Johnson said Sunday "I'm in the wrong" and needed to apologize because the helmet hit someone. He says he and Pendleton met Sunday and says "We're all good."
