Morgan stars as Brewers beat Braves

MILWAUKEE — Nyjer Morgan jarred the ball loose in a collision at home to give Milwaukee the lead in the second inning, and the Brewers went on to beat the Atlanta Braves 4-2 on Thursday.

Ryan Braun hit his third home run of the season for the Brewers, who have recovered nicely from a four-game losing streak to start the season. Milwaukee rallied to take three of four games from the Braves after losing Monday’s home opener at Miller Park.

Martin Prado had a two-run single for Atlanta, which will hold its home opener Friday night after playing its first seven games on the road.

Brewers closer John Axford pitched a scoreless ninth to earn saves in back-to-back games after a shaky start to the season.
