Lynn allowed three hits over seven innings before Carlos Martinez finished off the surprising Brewers, who still have the majors’ best record at 10-3. Lynn (3-0) frustrated hitters by mixing a fastball that topped 95 mph with a slider.

Jhonny Peralta hit a solo shot in the second off Brewers starter Matt Garza (0-2) before Jay sent a ball over the wall near the right field corner in the sixth.

BRAVES 9, PHILLIES 6

PHILADELPHIA • Dan Uggla hit two home runs, including a grand slam in the ninth inning that lifted the Atlanta Braves to a wild win over the Phillies.

Evan Gattis also homered twice and Uggla drove in five runs as the Braves won their fourth straight. The teams combined for five homers and 12 runs in the final two innings.

Gattis, Uggla and Andrelton Simmons hit consecutive homers in the eighth that put Atlanta ahead 5-1.

Domonic Brown’s three-run homer capped a five-run bottom of the eighth that gave the Phillies a 6-5 lead.

The game will be resumed in the top of the seventh inning Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
