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 for their fourth straight victory.
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.
