Braves Blast Brewers Behind B-Mac

One paragraph recap:

The Braves offense finally got off the bench and pounded out some runs. The biggest blast was dealt by Brian McCann, who connected for a grand slam in the third inning when the Braves opened up a six-run lead. They continued to add runs throughout the afternoon as Derek Lowe scuffled, and then Jesse Chavez needed to be bailed out by Billy Wagner. Omar Infante contributed another four-hit game filling in for Chipper Jones, and Matt Diaz continued his hot hitting with three hits and three RBI, including a solo home run in the fifth.

The Braves split the series with the Brewers, and now have an off-day on Monday before facing the NL West leading Padres.
