Gotay, hitting for Campillo, led off the fifth inning with his second homer.
The Braves loaded the bases against Eaton with no outs in the sixth. Teixeira led off with a double. Brian McCann walked and Kelly Johnson singled to right, knocking Eaton out of the game.
Slumping Jeff Francoeur, who struck out in each of his first two at-bats, hit a double-play grounder off reliever Chad Durbin to drive in Teixeira. Durbin struck out Mark Kotsay to end the inning, stranding McCann on third base.
Francoeur added a third strikeout with a runner on second in the eighth to drop his batting average to .236.
Notes: RHP Brett Myers, making his first minor league start for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, gave up five hits and three runs in five innings against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday night. He walked two and struck out six while throwing 100 pitches one day after he agreed to the minor league assignment. ... RHP Clay Condrey, who missed the first two games of the series to be with his wife while she delivered a baby, plans to return to the Phillies on Thursday. ... Gotay's homer was the first of his career as a pinch-hitter.
