Final Score: Atlanta 5, Milwaukee 2
Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Jason Heyward hit a go-ahead two-run homer
in the fifth and Freddie Freeman added a pair of solo shots as the Atlanta
Braves edged the Milwaukee Brewers, 5-2, in the second game of their season-
opening three-game series.
Carlos Gomez sent Alex Wood's first offering off the black backdrop beyond the
center-field wall, but Atlanta's young 23-year-old starter settled down after
allowing two more baserunners in that first inning.
Wood (1-0) wound up allowing five hits and three walks while fanning five over
seven innings. His counterpart, Kyle Lohse (0-1), also went seven frames but
took the loss having surrendered three runs on five hits.
"He threw a nice ballgame," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of Lohse despite
serving up two home runs.
The Braves were shut out, 2-0, on Opening Day at Miller Park and had not
scored against the Brewers in 22 innings before Heyward found the right-field
seats in the fifth to give them a 2-1 lead.
Freeman, who was thrown out trying to score from first when Dan Uggla doubled
into the left-field gap in the fourth, trotted around the bases in the sixth
when he sent one down the right-field line and narrowly over the fence.
"It was a breaking ball down and he flicked it around the (foul) pole," Braves
manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "I don't know how he hit it.'
Two frames later, Freeman crushed a Zach Duke offering deep to right for the
fifth multi-home run game of his career.
Gomez manufactured a run in the eighth when he walked, stole second, took
third on an error and scored on Aramis Ramirez's two-out single, but Atlanta
got the run back in the ninth when Uggla doubled again and scored on an
Andrelton Simmons sacrifice fly.
Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth to close out Atlanta's first
The Braves had lost nine of their previous 10 games at Miller Park ... Lohse
struck out eight ... Freeman finished with three hits ... Ramirez and Jonathan
Lucroy each had two hits for Milwaukee.
