Brewers pound Braves 9-3

Posted:

ATLANTA (AP) -- Ryan Braun's two-run homer helped give Milwaukee an early lead, Randy Wolf earned his first win over Atlanta in seven years and the Brewers beat the Braves 9-3 on Friday night.

Wolf (7-8) allowed seven hits and three runs in six innings for his first win over the Braves since Sept. 9, 2003, also at Turner Field. Wolf improved to 5-12 in his career against Atlanta.

Wolf outlasted Tommy Hanson (8-6), who gave up six hits and four runs, three earned, in five innings.

Atlanta's Chipper Jones sustained a mild left hamstring strain on a seventh-inning swing. He grabbed the back of his leg after the swing and left the game after hitting a popup with the bases loaded to Rickie Weeks at second base. Jones is day to day.
