"Ive had a lot of opportunities before but was never able to come up with the victory at this stage. For sure this is one of my greatest weeks on the tour."

He is the fifth-greatest winner in the surface, behind Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, Tommy Robredo and Nicolas Almagro. Monaco had a set point in the first set but couldnt capitalize on it. "It was a very close match, he had his chances in the first set and I had mine in the second, it was very difficult," Lorenzi said.

Louis Cardinals won the World Series last season, but after losing first baseman Albert Pujols to free agency and manager Tony LaRussa to retirement, they opened the 2012 season in 12th spot in the TSN. ATLANTA -- Milwaukee Brewers centre fielder Carlos Gomez believes he picked the right way to get back at Paul Maholm. Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman thinks Gomez acted way out of line. Either way, Atlantas offence struggled again, and the Braves lost a critical three-game series to the Milwaukee Brewers. "Its a tough game and unfortunately I got kicked out in the first inning for doing nothing," Freeman said. "Its a little frustrating." The NL East champion Braves were shut out for the second time in three games, falling 4-0 on Kyle Lohses two-hitter Wednesday night. After losing three of four, Atlanta (93-65) has fallen two percentage points behind the St. Louis Cardinals (94-65) for the NLs best record. 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. Freeman, Atlantas best hitter, was ejected along with reserve catcher Gerald Laird. Gomez, the Brewers top slugger, stirred emotions on both teams as the games second batter. As soon as he homered, Gomez stood in the batters box watching the ball sail into the seats in left field, stared at Maholm and flipped his bat behind him. Gomez, who was yelling at Maholm as he slowly trotted up the first base line, was still upset that the pitcher hit his leg with an 88 mph fastball in the Brewers 7-4 home loss to Atlanta on June 23. "I dont apologize for this," Gomez said. "Just take the pain back. You can see the replay. They hit me for no reason, and I tried to get it back today. Its the only opportunity that I have. Thats what I did." The argument continued as Gomez slowly trotted across first and began jawing with Freeman, who said he told Gomez to "act like hed been here before" and run the bases. "If you have a beef with the pitcher, have a beef with the pitcher," Freeman said. "Dont make us get involved. Thats us. Were going to back up our pitcher. Im fine with how everybody handled it." Gomez touched second and third without incident before Brian McCann, Atlantas catcher, stood in the third base line about 20 feet from the plate and stopped him. The benches emptied, and Gomez was ejected for shoving Braves reserve outfielder Reed Johnson and Freeman for pushing a pile of players and coaches. Dana DeMuth, the third base umpire and crew chief, didnt hesitate to eject Freeman. "Right when he came in, he went boom with an elbow, which we saw, and it caught the third baseman, (Aramis) Ramirez," DeMuth said. "That right there is just like throwing a punch. That is overaggressive. That, No. 1, calls for an ejection. What we saw out there was the same as we saw (on video). There was nobody else that was overly aggressive other than Gomez, of course." Gomez never touched home plate, but the Brewers were still credited with a run because McCann was charged with obstructing the runner. DeMuth added that Laird was ejected for arguing from the dugout after the game restarted. Logan Schafer took Gomezs spot in centre field. Chris Johnson took Freemans spot at first while second baseman Dan Uggla entered the game for Atlanta and Elliott Johnson moved from second to take Johnsons spot at third.

He retired 20 straight batters after Andrelton Simmons led off the first with a bunt single, and threw just 54 pitches, 42 strikes, through the first six innings. Lohse is 10-4 with a 2.91 ERA over his last 22 starts. He pitched his 10th career complete game, allowing four hits, two starts ago in a 5-1 home victory over Cincinnati on Sept. 13. "I felt good to go out there and establish that I was going to throw strikes," Lohse said. "And they were swinging so the end result of that is if youve got a good defence behind you youre going to have a decent game. And that was a little bit better than decent." Evan Gattis two-out single in the seventh gave the Braves their second and last baserunner, but McCann followed with a flyout. Milwaukee took a 2-0 lead in the fourth when Yuniesky Betancourt singled, advanced to second on a wild pitch, moved to third on Jeff Bianchis single and scored on Sean Haltons sacrifice fly. Scooter Gennett singled with two outs in the seventh, moved to second on Lohses single and scored from second on Norichika Aokis RBI single to make it 3-0. All three runs were charged to Maholm (10-11), who gave up eight hits and struck out seven in seven innings. Scott Downs, the third Atlanta pitcher, gave up an RBI single to Aoki with one out in the ninth to make it 4-0. Lohse, facing Atlanta for the first time this season, began the night 3-1 with a 4.97 ERA in 10 career starts against the Braves. Maholm, who dropped to 5-11 with a 5.07 ERA in 24 career starts against Milwaukee, was shocked at Gomezs antics. "When he rounded third and was still acting like that, I told him, Congratulations, you hit a homer. Run," Maholm said. "Thats all I said. Like I said, hes not the first and hes not the last to hit a homer off me. Hes probably not going to be the last guy that pimped it. You can pimp it and do whatever, but at least run the bases." Gomez didnt blame McCann for blocking his path to the plate. "If Im a catcher, I do the same thing," Gomez said. "I try to protect my pitchers, my teammates. I respect McCann, all his players. Im going to apologize to his manager, his organization, that it went that far. The adrenaline, the emotion takes it more than you expect."

Gonzalez confirmed before the game that RHP Brandon Beachy will not pitch again this season.
