ATLANTA (AP) -- Kyle Lohse pitched a two-hitter and the Milwaukee Brewers overcame Carlos Gomez's ejection in the first inning to beat the Atlanta Braves 4-0 on Wednesday night.
The NL East champion Braves were shut out for the second time in three nights and have been blanked 17 times, second-most in the league.
After losing three of four, Atlanta has fallen three games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the NL's best winning percentage.
Lohse (11-10) struck out five and threw just 22 of 89 pitches for balls. In his first season with Milwaukee, Lohse was pitching for St. Louis when he had his last shutout, a 5-0 victory over Washington on April 21, 2011.
Gomez, made it 1-0 in the first with his 23rd homer, but was ejected without touching home plate during a benches-clearing argument.
