Braves Lose 5th Straight

ATLANTA (AP) - Micah Owings walked off the field after getting
beaned with the bases loaded in the 12th inning and the Cincinnati
Reds beat the Atlanta Braves 4-2 on Sunday for their seventh
consecutive win.

Owings (7-12), who pitched two scoreless innings, was hit on the
batting helmet by an 0-1 fastball from Kenshin Kawakami. Owings was
on his back for several seconds before Reds staff helped him sit up
and walk to the dugout.

Joey Votto scored on the play and Corky Miller followed with a
sacrifice fly to make it 4-2.

Kawakami (7-11), who has started 25 of 27 games, allowed two runs and two hits in two innings. Atlanta has lost five straight, matching its season-worst skid set April 14-18.
