Brian McCann hit two home runs, including a solo shot in the 10th inning that lifted the Atlanta Braves over the Toronto Blue Jays 7-6 on Tuesday.

McCann and rookie Evan Gattis hit back-to-back homers off Ramon Ortiz in the sixth, giving the Braves a 6-5 lead. The Blue Jays tied it on J.P. Arencibia's RBI double in the seventh.

McCann connected for a leadoff drive in the 10th against Thad Weber (0-1) for his sixth home run. It was McCann's first multihomer game of the season and the ninth of his career.

Cory Gearrin (2-1) pitched one inning for the win. Craig Kimbrel celebrated his 25th birthday by finishing for his 16th save in 19 chances.

Jordan Schafer also homered for the Braves.
