Braves 3, Brewers 2, 10 innings

May 27, 1999

MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Chipper Jones homered in the 10th inning to give the Atlanta Braves a 3-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night.

Jones’ one-out homer off reliever David Weathers (4-1) came one night after the Braves hit three homers in the ninth inning to beat Milwaukee. It was Jones’ 11th homer of the season.

Rudy Seanez (3-0) pitched 1 1-3 innings for the win, and John Rocker pitched the 10th inning for his second save of the series and his eighth of the season.

Bruce Chen, making his second start for Atlanta since being called up from Triple-A Richmond, pitched six innings. He allowed four hits, struck out two and walked two.

Hideo Nomo, in his fourth start since joining Milwaukee, allowed eight hits in seven innings. He struck out nine, a season-high for a Brewers’ starter this season.

Milwaukee took a 1-0 lead in the second when Ron Belliard singled, stole second and scored on Mark Loretta’s single.

Atlanta used three consecutive hits in the fourth to take a 2-1 lead. Javy Lopez doubled and scored on Ryan Klesko’s double. Klesko then scored on a single by Andruw Jones.

Milwaukee tied it in the bottom half on a solo home run by Alex Ochoa. It was his first homer since May 12, 1998, when he was with Minnesota.

Atlanta played the game under protest. In the first inning, home plate umpire Angel Hernandez warned Lopez to stay within the catcher’s box with Mark Loretta, Milwaukee’s first batter, at the plate.

Atlanta manager Bobby Cox questioned Hernandez, and was then ejected after Chen hit Loretta with a pitch.

Notes: Milwaukee catcher David Nilsson was replaced by Bobby Hughes after Nilsson lined out to first baseman Ryan Klesko with the bases loaded and one out in the first inning. Nilsson strained his left groin and is listed day-to-day. ... Milwaukee second baseman Fernando Vina served the last of his two-game suspension. ... Atlanta is 4-1 in extra-inning games.
