MILWAUKEE (AP) - Martin Prado and Dan Uggla homered off Takashi Saito in the eighth inning, rallying the Atlanta Braves to a 2-1 victory and spoiling the Milwaukee Brewers' home opener on Monday.
Before the homers by Prado and Uggla, the Braves failed to muster much offensive support for starter Brandon Beachy, who gave up four hits, including Rickie Weeks' homer, in six innings while striking out seven. Weeks continued his impressive start for Milwaukee with his third homer of the season leading off the third.
It was the continuation of an ugly start to the season for the Brewers, who were swept in a three-game series at Cincinnati.
