Braves blank Brewers behind Johnson HR, Harang pitching

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Atlanta pitcher Aaron Harang and the Milwaukee Brewers' Matt Garza had no-hit bids until Chris Johnson homered with two outs in the seventh inning, sending the Braves to a 1-0 victory Wednesday.

Harang didn't allow a hit until Logan Schafer grounded a single leading off the bottom of the seventh.

This marked the first time both starting pitchers had not allowed a hit through six innings since June 13, 2010, when Ted Lilly of the Cubs and Gavin Floyd of the White Sox accomplished the feat, according to STATS.

Harang (1-0), making his Braves debut, gave up two hits in 6 2-3 innings, struck out three and walked one.

Relievers Luis Avilan, David Carpenter and Craig Kimbrel were hitless, with Kimbrel getting three outs for his second save.
