Braves Continue To Roll In Early Wednesday Action

By Jim McCoy Wed 22nd May SportsAtlanta BracesMajor League BaseballMinnesota Twins
Evan Gattis kept up an amazing rookie season with his first grand slam, B.J. Upton and Ramiro Pena also homered, and the Atlanta Braves finished off a sweep of the woeful Minnesota Twins 8-3 Wednesday. The Braves stretched their winning streak to six games and made things easy for Paul Maholm (6-4), who allowed an unearned run in 7 1-3 innings. Gattis struck less than 24 hours after his two-out, pinch-homer in the ninth allowed the Braves to pull out a 5-4 win over the Twins in extra innings. Swinging on a 3-0 pitch with the bases loaded in the fourth, he launched an opposite-field drive just inside the right-field pole. Vance Worley (1-5) gave up eight runs in 3 2-3 innings in the Twins' eighth straight loss.
