Jhoulys Chacin settled down nicely after a rough start.

Trailing 2-0 after the first three batters of the game Reynaldo

 , Chacin threw seven solid innings and Hernan Perez
homered among his three hits, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-2 victory
over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night in a matchup of first-place teams.

NL Central Division-leading Milwaukee won its fourth game in a row to go 17
games over .500 (52-35) for the first time since July 1, 2014, when the Brewers
were 51-34.

Chacin (7-3) gave up three hits and two earned runs while matching a season
high with seven strikeouts in what tied for his longest outing this year. The
right-hander, who was 0-2 in his previous three starts while allowing 10 runs in
15 2/3 innings, retired 20 of the last 24 batters he faced.

”Jhoulys pitched excellent – after the first Cheap

 ,” Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. ”He
locked it in and made some really good pitches the rest of the night.”

Dan Jennings pitched two perfect innings for his first save this season, and
second of his career.

NL East-leading Atlanta dropped its third consecutive game after winning four
straight – and lost for the first time this season on a Thursday (7-1).

Braves left-hander Max Fried (1-3) lasted only three innings in his third
start of the season, giving up four earned runs and four hits with three
walks.

”He had a blister starting and he’s had a history of the blister thing,”
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. ”And when it kind of surfaced, I decided I
didn’t want to take any chances, so I shut him down.”

Atlanta gave Fried a 2-0 lead in the first Authentic

 , but he allowed a run in the bottom of the
frame and did not help his cause in the second. After a leadoff triple by Perez
and a walk to Keon Broxton, Milwaukee tied it at 2 on a single by Tyler
Saladino. Fried failed to hold the runners on first and second by not even
looking at them, so Broxton and Saladino converted a double steal. Erik Kratz’s
groundout scored Broxton to give Milwaukee a 3-2 lead.

”We’re getting the right guys out there, trying to do our homework and find
spots when we can take advantage of something,” Counsell said.

Then, Fried not only walked Chacin Authentic

 , he fired a wild pitch that bounced off the
backstop on ball four. Catcher Tyler Flowers retrieved the ball and threw to
Fried covering the plate. But Saladino – who appeared to be an easy out – slid
awkwardly in front of the plate and knocked it out of the pitcher’s glove.
Saladino got up and stepped on the plate for a 4-2 lead.

Perez hit a two-run homer – his fifth – off reliever Dan Winkler in the
eighth.

MORE MOUND MISCUES

In the first, Ozzie Albies scored from third on a grounder hit by Freddie
Freeman. Chacin fielded the ball, looked at Albies and then slowly lobbed a high
toss to first which allowed the speedster to score without a throw home. … In
the eighth, Winkler’s pickoff attempt at first hit Jonathan Villar in the head
and the ball ended up in Milwaukee’s dugout for an error. Villar took second and
scored on a single by Christian Yelich.

FREEMAN STILL SLUMPING

In his previous nine games in Milwaukee, Freeman was hitting .419 (13-for-31)
with six home runs and seven walks. But that did not end his slump, as he was 0
for 3 and is now batting .154 (10-for-65) in his last 16 games.
