PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Derek Lowe took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and the Atlanta Braves won their sixth straight game, beating Philadelphia 5-0 on Friday night despite Cliff Lee's 16 strikeouts for the Phillies.

Shane Victorino singled to start the seventh for the first hit off Lowe, and Placido Polanco followed with a double. The right-hander then came out of the game with an apparent leg or foot injury.

Lowe (3-3) appeared to hurt himself in the top of the seventh after singling and going to second on Chipper Jones' single.

Brian McCann had a pair of doubles and an RBI, and Alex Gonzalez had three hits and an RBI for the Braves.

Lee (2-3) set the major league high for strikeouts this season, coming within one of the franchise record. The big league mark for a nine-inning game is 20.
