MILWAUKEE (AP) - Kelly Johnson homered and drove in three runs as the Atlanta Braves ended the Milwaukee Brewers' eight-game winning streak with a 5-3 victory Monday night.

The game was held up in the ninth inning while an injured fan received medical attention after getting hit by a line drive.

A.J. Pierzynski had four hits, including two doubles, and rookie pitcher Matt Wisler won for the third time in four career starts.

Johnson launched a two-run homer to right field in the first off Kyle Lohse. Milwaukee avoided further damage when Juan Uribe was caught in a rundown after attempting to score on a grounder to third later in the inning.

Gerardo Parra hit a leadoff homer for the Brewers in the bottom half, his third this season.
