ATLANTA (AP) - Evan Gattis had a two-run homer among his three hits, Elliot Johnson drove in five runs and the NL East champion Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-5 on Sunday to cap their best regular season in nine years.

The Braves won their first division title since 2005. Atlanta will have home-field advantage against the Dodgers in the NL division series, which begins Thursday at Turner Field.

Atlanta (96-66) finished with its best record since also winning 96 games in 2004. After the victory, players gathered for a photo around a 2013 banner that was placed on a stand in front of the mound.
