Braves take series from San Fran, 6-3
ATLANTA (AP) - Derek Lowe pitched into the sixth inning before leaving with an injury and David Ross hit a two-run homer, helping the Atlanta Braves beat the San Francisco Giants 6-3 on Sunday.
Lowe (11-9) was bothered by cramping in his right hamstring. The right-hander allowed two runs and five hits in 5 1-3 innings. Four relievers combined to finish up, with Takashi Saito tossing a scoreless ninth for his first save of the season.
Omar Infante hit a solo homer for Atlanta, which won three of four in the series and has won four of five overall. The NL East-leading Braves also improved their major league-best home record to 39-15 and maintained a two-game over Philadelphia, which beat the New York Mets 6-5.
