ATLANTA, GA (WHBL) - Kyle Lohse struck out eight batters in eight innings Wednesday night as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Braves in Atlanta, 6-1. The veteran right-hander remains unbeaten in his last nine starts, and has still not lost since April 1st. Lohse gave up a run on four hits with no walks, including an R-B-I double by Justin Upton for Atlanta's only tally. Upton had three of the Braves' five hits on the night. Mark Reynolds gave Milwaukee all the offense it needed with a grand slam in the top of the first inning. It was the first time since May 6th the Brewers scored at least four runs in a single frame. Carlos Gomez went 3 for 5 with a two-run blast for Milwaukee, which ended a season-high four-game overall losing streak as well as four straight losses to the Braves. Lohse retired 11 straight batters at one point, as he improved to 6-1. Ervin Santana lost his second start in a row, as he dropped to 4-2. He gave up all six Milwaukee runs on nine hits and four walks. The Brewers skipped batting practice to see if they could break out of their recent doldrums on offense. Manager Ron Roenicke says there won't be any B-P tonight, either, when the Crew goes for a split of its four-game set with the Braves. Right-hander Matt Garza will start for the Crew against right-hander Aaron Harang. Tune in to WHBL for pregame coverage beginning at 5:35.
