Shaw hits long HR, Davies shines as Brewers blank Braves 7-0

ATLANTA (AP) Travis Shaw is the first player to reach SunTrust Park's right-field roof, and he basically shrugged his shoulders about the whole thing.

After all, he hit a longer homer earlier this season.

Shaw sparked Milwaukee's sluggish lineup with a long two-run drive, leading Zach Davies and the Brewers to a 7-0 victory over Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

After managing just five runs while dropping the first two games of the series, the Brewers scored seven times in the first four innings. The Braves had won four straight games.

Shaw's 15th homer started the scoring. Domingo Santana singled with two out in the first before Shaw's drive traveled 429 feet, landing on the roof over the second section of the new stadium before falling back into the seats.

Braves right fielder Nick Markakis turned his head to watch the long homer but otherwise didn't move.

''It was a pretty good one, probably the second-best ball I've hit this year,'' said Shaw, who belted a 458-foot shot off the third-deck facing at Miller Park against St. Louis on April 21.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell was impressed with Sunday's homer.

''I believe that no one has hit it there because that's pretty far,'' Counsell said.

Keon Broxton added three hits and three RBIs as the NL Central-leading Brewers opened a 1 1/2-game lead over the Chicago Cubs, who lost 4-2 at Miami. Broxton's 13th homer barely cleared the right-field wall in the second, and he also had a two-run single in Milwaukee's three-run third.

Davies (8-4) pitched seven innings of four-hit ball, bouncing back nicely from his worst start of the season. He allowed seven runs and 10 hits in a 7-3 loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

''You felt he was in control the whole outing,'' Counsell said. ''For the most part he was just ahead of hitters. He had hitters off balance the whole day.''

Teheran (6-6) allowed seven runs and seven hits in three-plus innings. Manager Brian Snitker said Teheran ''wasn't hitting on anything and had a tough day.''

Teheran has given up 19 homers this season, including 13 at home, where his record fell to 1-6.

''I think he'll be fine,'' Snitker said. ''He'll get back and get to work and get on a roll like he was before.''

NOT BAD

Despite the loss, the Braves have won four straight series for their best stretch since winning five straight to close the 2016 season.

CATCHING HELP

The Brewers claimed catcher Stephen Vogt off waivers from Oakland. The 32-year-old Vogt, an All-Star in 2015 and 2016, was hitting .217 when he was designated for assignment by the A's on Thursday.

Catcher Jett Bandy and outfielder Lewis Brinson were optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Counsell said Vogt's left-handed bat will add balance to the lineup. Vogt will share time with Manny Pina.

HE CAN HIT

Davies also enjoyed a rare highlight at the plate, hitting a leadoff double in the fourth for his first career extra-base hit. That chased Teheran, who struck out three and walked two.

''I wanted to be part of the hitting, too,'' Davies said.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Brewers: SS Orlando Arcia remained in the game after he swung and hit a foul ball that bounced near the plate and knocked off his helmet in the eighth. ... 2B Eric Sogard, hit by a pitch on his right elbow in Friday night's game, was back in the lineup after being limited to pinch-hitting duty on Saturday.

Braves: LF Matt Kemp (tightness in left hamstring) was a late addition to the lineup after missing two games.

UP NEXT

Brewers: Following an off day, Milwaukee opens a series at Cincinnati on Tuesday night. RHP Junior Guerra (1-1, 3.11 ERA) is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in two career starts against the Reds.

Braves: Following an off day, the Braves open a series at San Diego on Tuesday night with rookie LHP Sean Newcomb (0-2, 1.96 ERA) making his fourth start.
