ATLANTA (AP) -- Marco Estrada pitched seven innings, Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Atlanta Braves 5-0 on Monday night.
   The NL East champion Braves began the night with the league's best record, 1 1/2 games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who did not play Monday, moved two games back.
   Atlanta has the majors' best home record at 52-23, but the Brewers led 4-0 in the eighth when Aramis Ramirez homered off reliever Anthony Varvaro.
   Gomez gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the first, hitting the first pitch he saw from Mike Minor (13-8) for his 22nd homer.
   The Brewers went up 3-0 in the fifth when Norichika Aoki doubled and scored on Jonathan Lucroy's 18th homer.
   Estrada (7-4) gave up two hits, walked three and struck out six. He threw a career-high 115 pitches, 76 for strikes.
