Brewers Shutout Braves, 5-0

Atlanta Sees Home Field Advantage Slipping Away

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Starter Mike Minor gave up two home runs to put his offense in an early hole it could not escape, and the Braves dropped the first game of their final homestand of the regular season on Monday night with a 5-0 loss to the Brewers.

In one of his last opportunities to impress as the Braves work on lining up their playoff rotation this week, Minor suffered a reprisal of the struggles giving up the long ball that have bookended his solid 2013 campaign. Carlos Gomez, Jonathan Lucroy and Aramis Ramirez homered for the visitors to drop Atlanta's Major League-best home record to 52-23 and hold the Braves' magic number for clinching home-field advantage throughout the National League playoffs at five.

The Cardinals' 4-3 victory over the Nationals brought St. Louis to within a half-game of the Braves for the NL's best record.
