Jenkins throws 6 strong innings, Braves beat Brewers 2-1

Posted:

  MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Tyrell Jenkins pitched six strong innings, Nick Markakis and Adonis Garcia drove in a run each in the seventh inning and the Atlanta Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Tuesday night.
   

Jenkins (2-2) allowed one run and three hits in six innings. He walked three and struck out three in his sixth career start and 10th major league appearance. The right-hander has a 1.00 ERA over his past three starts.
   

His only mistake was Ryan Braun's home run in the fourth.
   

Mauricio Cabrera pitched the ninth for his third save.
   

Wily Peralta (4-8) was recalled Monday when the Brewers placed right-hander Junior Guerra on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. He allowed two runs and four hits over six-plus innings.
