ATLANTA (AP) — Eric Lauer allowed one earned run, Christian Yelich's infield single was the big hit in Milwaukee's four-run sixth inning, and the streaking Brewers beat the Atlanta Braves 6-3.
The NL Central-leading Brewers have won four straight and nine of 10.
Lauer gave up two runs, one earned, on two hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings.
He had eight strikeouts. Atlanta's Ronald Acuña Jr. opened the fourth with a 450-foot homer to center field — his first since returning from knee surgery.
