ATLANTA (AP) -- About an hour before the game, Travis Smith found out he'd be starting. The journeyman didn't want to squander the chance. Filling in for the ailing Mike Hampton, Smith pitched five solid innings and earned his first major league win in more than two years, leading the Atlanta Braves past the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 on Monday.
