ATLANTA — Evan Gattis hit a tiebreaking homer off outfielder-turned-pitcher Jason Lane, and that was all Ervin Santana and the Braves needed. Santana matched his career high with 11 strikeouts in eight shutout innings. "I kept everybody off balance with the slider," Santana said. "That was one of the keys." Gattis led off the seventh with his first homer since June 18, before he went on the disabled list for nearly three weeks with a bulging disc in his back.
