MLB: Sheets dominates Braves

By Charles Odum

ATLANTA ó The opening game of an 11-day road trip didnít bother Ben Sheets. The Milwaukee Brewersí ace hasnít lost on the road all season.
Sheets gave up only four hits in a dominant complete-game performance, Mike Cameron hit a two-run home run and the Brewers beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 on Monday night.
Sheets (9-1) retired the final 16 batters for his National League-leading third complete game. He struck out seven and did not walk a batter.
Sheets won his fifth straight decision and is 6-0 in 10 road starts.
Jo-Jo Reyes (3-5) gave up four runs and six hits with two walks in 2 1/3 innings, the shortest of his 10 starts this season. He had lasted at least six innings in each of his five starts since May 28, when he gave up only one run in seven innings at Milwaukee while setting a career high with nine strikeouts.
Reyes fell behind early. Corey Hart led off the second with a single, moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on a two-run homer to left by Cameron, who returned after missing three games with a hyperextended right big toe.
The Brewers scored two runs in the third on consecutive doubles by Rickie Weeks, J.J. Hardy and Ryan Braun. Reyes then walked Hart and Cameron to load the bases and was taken out of the game. Reliever Buddy Carlyle stranded the three baserunners, getting Bill Hall to line out to second and Jason Kendall to fly out to right.
Carlyle pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings, the longest appearance by an Atlanta reliever this season.
Atlanta scored its only run in the fourth. Kelly Johnson led off with a single, moved to third on Mark Teixeiraís single and scored on Brian McCannís groundout. The single was Teixeiraís only hit after hitting three homers against Seattle on Sunday.
