Moustakas caps rally as Brewers knock off Braves
Christian Yelich began the inning by reaching on a throwing error by reliever Jesse Biddle (3-1), and Lorenzo Cain followed with a single.
Moustakas then banged a one-strike pitch into the left field corner to drive in two runs.
Braun, not known for his defense, made a highlight-reel diving snag in left field on an Ender Inciarte liner with a runner on second in the seventh.
Milwaukee, which had lost four of its last five games, evened the three-game series with the Braves. Milwaukee leads the season series 4-2.
The winning pitcher was Corbin Burnes (3-0), who pitched a scoreless seventh. Left-hander Josh Hader pitched two innings and struck out three to close the game and earn his ninth save.
Atlanta starter Julio Teheran allowed one run on two hits and two walks in six strong innings. He struck out six. Teheran posted his best start since the All-Star Game. Over his previous three starts, Teheran's ERA was 7.43.
The Brewers jumped on Teheran for a run in the first inning. Cain reached on a fielder's choice, stole second and scored when Braun lined a single to center field.
The Braves tied the game in the bottom of the first on a leadoff homer by Ronald Acuna Jr., his 14th.
Atlanta scored again in the fourth inning. Freddie Freeman doubled to right off the glove of first baseman Eric Thames and scored when Nick Markakis lined a single that was also deflected by Thames.
