Braves Take Out Brewers

Mark Teixeira homered and drove in four runs and reliever-turned-starter Jorge Campillo's first career hit scored two more to lift the Atlanta Braves to an 8-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.

Chipper Jones also continued his sizzling start, going 2 for 4 with two walks to raise his major league leading average to .420 and help the Braves avoid being swept for the third time this season.

Campillo (2-0) also got his first RBI in his fourth career start after notching his first win against the Mets on May 20. The 29-year-old righty who relies on a deceptive changeup struck out six and ran his scoreless innings streak as a starter to 14 before allowing a solo homer in the fifth to Russell Branyan.
