Jones' 3-run HR powers Braves to win over Brewers

Posted:

 

ATLANTA (AP) -- Chipper Jones hit a three-run homer in his return after missing two games, Brandon Beachy pitched seven strong innings and the surging Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-4 on Sunday for a three-game sweep.

   Jason Heyward also homered for the Braves, who have won five straight after losing their first four games. Beachy gave up three hits and one unearned run in seven innings.

   Jones, whose 40th birthday is April 24, had arthroscopic surgery on March 26 to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He missed the first two games of the series after having the knee drained on Friday.

   Chris Narveson gave up five runs in four innings for the Brewers, who have lost four straight. Jonathan Lucroy homered and drove in three runs.
