Brewers bounce back to Slam Braves
ATLANTA (AP) — Mark Reynolds hit a first-inning grand slam, Kyle Lohse combined with Francisco Rodriguez on a five-hitter and the Brewers ended a four-game losing streak by beating the Braves 6-1 Wednesday night.
Carlos Gomez added a two-run homer in the fourth for Milwaukee.
Lohse (6-1) was sharp in going eight innings to win his sixth straight decision. He gave up one run on four hits with no walks and eight strikeouts. Lohse’s only loss of the season came against the Braves on April 1.
After being shut out 5-0 Tuesday night, the Brewers skipped batting practice Wednesday and then jumped on Ervin Santana (4-2) in the first inning. Gomez singled, Scooter Gennett doubled and Jonathan Lucroy took a one-out walk before Reynolds’ third career grand slam — a line drive over the left-field wall.
Reynolds snapped a 0-for-12 streak with his ninth homer.
