Brewers Outdone by Braves in 4-7 Loss

From Sportsline.com:

It's difficult to remain in contention for a National League playoff spot while carrying the league's worst home record.

The Atlanta Braves hope more success at home will push them closer to the top spot in the wild-card race.

Brian McCann homered and drove in four runs to help the Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-4 Sunday for their first home series win in more than a month.

"Maybe we can get on that streak we keep talking about," manager Bobby Cox said.

"We want to get back in this thing. That's what we're here for. We're going to battle down to the end."

The Braves, who improved to 25-31 at home, are six games behind Cincinnati in the wild-card race. The Reds beat the Phillies 7-5 in 11 innings Sunday.

By winning two of three from the Brewers, the Braves won their first home series since winning three of four from the Reds July 6-9 at Turner Field. Still, the Braves were only 3-3 in the homestand.
