MILWAUKEE – Casey Kotchman hit a three-run homer and Nate McLouth made a pair of great catches in center when starter Derek Lowe began to tire, lifting the surging Atlanta Braves to a 10-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers today.

Kotchman's deep drive to right field off Braden Looper in the sixth was the difference for Atlanta, which has won eight of 11 since the All-Star break.

Brian McCann, who went 3 for 4, added a solo homer in the seventh and Kelly Johnson hit a two-run shot in the ninth as the Brewers' bullpen imploded for five runs, including two more in the eighth on a dropped fly by center fielder Jody Gerut and a bases loaded walk by Mike Burns.
