ATLANTA (AP) - Yovani Gallardo and Carlos Villanueva combined
for a two-hit shutout, rookie Mat Gamel drove in three runs and the
NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers beat the Atlanta Braves 4-0 on
Friday night.

Gallardo (6-2) walked four with six strikeouts and gave up no
singles in eight innings. He allowed no baserunner past second base
and threw 110 pitches. Villanueva completed the shutout with a
perfect ninth inning.

The Braves' only hits off Gallardo were doubles - in the third
inning by Martin Prado and in the seventh by Brian McCann.

Gamel hit a two-run double in the fourth to drive in Prince
Fielder and Mike Cameron. Gamel added a run-scoring single in the
Brewers' two-run fifth.
