ATLANTA (AP) — Avisaíl García, Willy Adames and Eduardo Escobar hit home runs and the Milwaukee Brewers overcame Corbin Burnes’ worst start of the season to beat Touki Toussaint and the Atlanta Braves 9-5.

García had three hits, including a three-run homer, in Milwaukee’s fourth consecutive win.

Burnes gave up a season-high five runs on nine hits and two walks in four-plus innings. He allowed four runs in the first inning, matching his high total of runs allowed in a game this season.

Austin Riley hit a two-run homer, only the fourth allowed by Burnes this season, to highlight the big inning.
