Making his first appearance since Aug. 19, 2005, Hampton gave up six runs and eight hits in four-plus innings and couldn’t protect a 9-3 lead. The two-time All-Star overcame two major operations on his left elbow and an assortment of other injuries to finally make it back.
Mark Teixeira hit a three-run homer during Atlanta’s nine-run fourth inning, but the Braves lost their 25th straight one-run game on the road.
Adam Eaton (4-8) pitched a scoreless inning to get the win in his third career relief appearance.
Brewers 6, Astros 4
MILWAUKEE ó Ryan Braun homered and drove in four runs, Bill Hall hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning and Milwaukee grabbed a share of the NL Central lead with a victory over Houston.
