The Braves battled back late from 6 – 4 and 7 – 5 deficits to take the series from the Brewers, 2 games to 1. Dansby Swanson‘s 2 run homer in the 6th tied it at 7, and an Ozzie Albies homer in the 7th won it.
Jonny Venters worked himself into a no-out, runners on 2nd and 3rd jam in the 7th, but a strikeout, intentional walk, and double play preserved the tie. Brad Brach and A.J. Minter closed out the 8th and 9th; winner, winner Jonny Venters.
Aguilar went 3 – 4 with a homer, double, and 4 RBI’s, and Lorenzo Cain added 4 more hits for the Brewers. Freeman and Markakis added doubles in the 5th to end as the only Braves with multiple hits.
The Braves move to 64 – 51, and pull into a first place tie with the Phillies. The Marlins come to town Monday; the series starts with a doubleheader.
