ATLANTA (AP) - Dansby Swanson hit a grand slam and a two-run shot and drove in a career-high seven runs to lead the Atlanta Braves to an 8-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Swanson had three hits, including the slam in the seventh off John Curtiss. He broke a 1-1 tie with his two-run homer off Brandon Woodruff in the sixth.

Swanson's single in the fourth tied the game at 1-all.

Swanson has set a career high with 20 homers, matching the Braves' franchise record for a shortstop. Denis Menke hit 20 homers in 1964 for the Milwaukee Braves.
