Brewers' Garza notches seven strikeouts in win over Braves

MILWAUKEE -- Domingo Santana homered twice and drove in all four Milwaukee runs as the Brewers ended the Atlanta Braves' four-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory Sunday.

Santana hit a solo shot in the fifth, then added a three-run drive in the sixth inning. The big right fielder has fifth homers this season, including three in the three-game series against Atlanta.

Freddie Freeman hit his ninth home run for the Braves, a solo shot in the sixth for a 2-1 lead.

Matt Garza (1-0) pitched 6 2/3 solid innings in his second start of the year. Neftali Feliz worked the ninth for his sixth save in seven chances.

Mike Foltynewicz (0-3) gave up both of Santana's homers.

Atlanta shortstop Dansby Swanson booted a routine grounder for an error with two outs in the sixth, allowing Santana to come to the plate with two runners on and the Braves leading 2-1. Santana homered on the first pitch.

The Braves came within 4-3 in the seventh when pinch hitter Brandon Phillips singled to extend his hitting streak to 13 games, with Jace Peterson scoring from second. Reliever Corey Knebel then got Ender Inciarte to foul out to end the inning.

Foltynewicz allowed four runs, one earned, on four hits while striking out six in six innings. He remains winless after five starts despite a 2.81 ERA.


Brewers slugger Ryan Braun left after six innings with tightness in his right trapezius, a large muscle that extends from the shoulder into the upper back. He was 0 for 3 in the game, reaching on an error in the fourth inning and again on a fielder's choice in the sixth. He was out briefly with lower back tightness earlier this season.


Braves: RHP Mauricio Cabrera (elbow tightness) only allowed one hit and two walks in two scoreless innings Saturday night in a Class A rehab start. He struck out two, throwing 18 strikes in 34 pitches. He is scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

Brewers: 3B Travis Shaw was out of the starting lineup Sunday, a day after suffering a bruised right hand when being hit by a pitch. X-rays showed no break in the hand, manager Craig Counsell said. "His hand is just a little sore, feels better than it did (Saturday)," Counsell said. "Nothing to be worried about, we'll just take another day (off)." … RHP Junior Guerra, who suffered a strained right calf on opening day, will work on agility drills this week, Counsell said. He also is pitching bullpen sessions every third day.


Braves: Atlanta begins a seven-game homestand with four contests against the New York Mets. RHP Julia Teheran (2-1, 3.38) is pitching Monday.

Brewers: Milwaukee begins a seven-game road trip with four contests against St. Louis. RHP Zach Davies (2-2, 6.57) is pitching Monday.
