Braves Beat Brewers To Open Second Half

One paragraph recap:

The Braves added Alex Gonzalez to their lineup and welcomed back Jason Heyward, but it was Martin Prado and Chipper Jones who hit solo home runs in the third inning that provided the offense. Jair Jurrjens gave up a solo home run of his own in the first, but didn’t allow the Brewers to cross the plate again. He pitched great for his second win of the year. Billy Wagner and the rest of the bullpen came on to shut the door in the late innings, and Jason Heyward actually picked up his first outfield assist of the year, helping to quell a rally in the second, and ran into a wall later in the game to make a spectacular (but scary) catch.
