Eric Lauer leads Brewers past Braves for sixth straight road victory

Christian Yelich singles in a run during the sixth inning Friday night against the Braves in Atlanta.

ATLANTA – For the first time since becoming a thing earlier in the week, the Ballplayer Bell didn’t toll.

This time, small ball and more rock-solid pitching were the storyline for the Milwaukee Brewers, who opened a big three-city, nine-game road trip with a 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday at Truist Park.

A four-run sixth inning in which the ball barely left the infield was the difference, while Eric Lauer kept up his torrid pace on the mound by racking up eight more strikeouts in a strong 6⅓-inning start as the Brewers won for the sixth consecutive time on the road.

Box score:Brewers 6, Braves 3
