Right-hander Jeff Suppan turned in a quality start, giving up three runs over six innings, but the Brewers fell to the host Braves. The loss moved the Brewers 1 1/2 games behind the idle Cubs in the National League Central standings. Rickie Weeks smashed a solo home run in the third inning.
Making his first career Major League start and first big league appearance since 2004, Jeff Bennett allowed one run in 5 2/3 innings, helping the Braves top the Brewers. Bennett struck out eight while walking one. After Brian McCann hit an RBI single in the first inning, Chipper Jones connected on a two-run single in the second.
