Brewers beat Braves 2-0 in Braun's 1st game back

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers star Ryan Braun drew a standing ovation in his return from a drug suspension, then was ruled out in the first call overturned under baseball's expanded replay system as Milwaukee beat the Atlanta Braves 2-0 on Monday in the season opener.

   Braun went 1 for 4 and stole a base in the fourth inning that helped set up a two-run double by Aramis Ramirez.

   A smattering of boos during Braun's first at-bat was easily drowned out by the overwhelming applause.  The former MVP was suspended for the final 65 games last year in the Biogenesis doping scandal.

   Braun had his infield single to lead off the sixth overturned to out after the call was challenged by Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez under Major League Baseball's new replay format.

   Yovani Gallardo (1-0) tossed six shutout innings for the win and Francisco Rodriguez got a save. Julio Teheran (0-1) took the loss.
