Ender Inciarte continued his hot hitting with an RBI single in the third inning for the first score of the game. Milwaukee responded with an RBI single by Ryan Braun in the bottom of the inning followed by a long three-run homer off the bat of Chris Carter.
Braves starter Joel De La Cruz departed after just four innings when he took a hard line drive off his right leg. The diagnosis was a right knee contusion. Chaz Roe, Eric O'Flaherty, and Jose Ramirez held the Brewers scoreless over the final four innings.
Freddie Freeman led off the fourth with a home run, his 20th, off the scoreboard against Chase Anderson to cut Milwaukee's lead to two. He homered again leading off the eighth. Freeman was 3-3 with his second multi-HR game of the season.
