Marco Estrada pitched seven innings of scoreless baseball and the Milwaukee Brewers pitching staff allowed only three hits as the Brewers cruised to a 5-0 shutout of the Atlanta Braves Monday night at Turner Field in Atlanta.


A day after clinching the National League East division title, the Braves were unable to establish any offense. Andrelton Simmons second inning triple was the only extra base hit tonight for the Braves.

Atlanta starter Mike Minor went seven innings, allowing three runs on eight hits and striking out six.

Aramis Ramirez was the Brewers offensive star, going 3 for 4, including a solo home run in the eighth inning. Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy each added homers for Milwaukee.

The Braves will send Freddy Garcia (4-7, 4.52) to the mound tomorrow night to face the Brewers Tyler Thornburg (3-1, 1.96). Game time is scheduled for 7:10 PM at Turner Field.
