SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Nate McLouth hit a two-run single off Brian Wilson with two outs in the 10th inning, and the Atlanta Braves beat the San Francisco Giants 9-6 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Jason Heyward hit a three-run homer and double, then singled in the 10th as the Braves posted their first sweep of any kind in San Francisco since 1998. Heyward and Chipper Jones started the inning with singles against Wilson (0-1) before Dan Uggla walked to load the bases.
Wilson got two quick outs and nearly escaped the jam before McLouth's grounder up the middle provided the go-ahead runs. Brian McCann added an RBI single off Dan Runzler.
Eric O'Flaherty (1-1) pitched two innings for the win, and Johnny Venters earned his first save of the season.
