Brewers' offense silenced against Braves in 8-2 loss

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Martin Prado hit a grand slam, Tommy Hanson got plenty of run support in eight scoreless innings and the scuffling Atlanta Braves snapped a power drought in an 8-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.

Atlanta had gone 253 games without a grand slam before Prado's in the sixth. The Braves had also gone four days without a homer before Troy Glaus led off the inning with a shot off Brewers starter Doug Davis (1-4).

The Braves also scored on an error by second baseman Rickie Weeks in the sixth to make it 3-0 before Davis walked Omar Infante to load the bases with two outs. Prado then hit reliever Manny Parra's fastball into the left-field bleachers.

Hanson (3-2) struck out eight and held the Brewers to four hits.
