Braves Begin 10-game Road Trip

UNDATED (AP) - Kyle Davies is scheduled to start for the Atlanta Braves tonight in Pittsburgh as they begin a 10-game road trip with a weekend series against the Pirates.

A 5-to-3 victory over the San Diego Padres yesterday gave the Braves seven wins in a 10-game homestand. That included winnning three out of four against the Padres.

Kelly Johnson's two-out, bases-clearing double in the sixth inning broke a 2-to-2 tie and lifted Atlanta to victory yesterday.

The Braves have now scored a major league-leading 88 runs with two outs -- more than half of their overall production.

Atlanta right-hander Tim Hudson improved to four-and-one. He was staked to a 2-nothing lead by four straight hits in the first. Two of them were run-scoring singles by Andruw Jones and Jeff Francoeur.

Khalil Green led off the fourth with a single and scored on Mike Cameron's double to left-center. Kevin Kouzmanoff followed with another double to nearly the same spot, and the score was tied at two until Johnson's double in the sixth.
