Reynolds' HR lifts Orioles past Braves, 5-4

ATLANTA (AP) - Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning, Nick Markakis had a career-high five hits and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Atlanta Braves 5-4 on Sunday to end their five-game losing streak.

Zach Britton gave up three runs in five-plus innings and hit his first career homer. Jim Johnson (5-1) gave up one run in two innings.

Markakis had a run-scoring double in the sixth. Markakis had three hits in Saturday night's loss after his 19-game hitting streak ended Friday night. Reynolds also drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the third. He had two homers in the Orioles' 5-4 loss to the Braves on Saturday night.

The Braves had their five-game winning streak snapped and were denied their third straight interleague sweep.

Kevin Gregg pitched a perfect ninth for his 15th save.
