Aoki hits two-run double, lifts Brewers to 4-1 win over Braves

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Norichika Aoki had a two-run double to key a four-run seventh inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 Monday night.

The Brewers sent 10 batters to the plate in the seventh, but did all the damage on two hits and a sacrifice fly. Their 16th win in 21 games has brought them back to the fringe of the NL wild-card race.

Jose Veras (4-4) pitched seventh and worked out of a bases-loaded jam to earn the victory.

John Axford worked the ninth for his 28th save, including his last 10.
