ATLANTA, June 15 (UPI) -- Andrelton Simmons put Atlanta in front with a two-run homer in the sixth Friday, rallying the Braves to a 4-2 decision over Baltimore.

Baltimore held a 2-1 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth, but Matt Diaz reached on a one-out single off Brian Matusz (5-7) and scored on Simmons' second homer of the year.

Jackson Wilson then tripled and scored the third run of the inning on an infield single by Michael Bourn, whose career-best hitting streak has reached 14 games.

Chad Durbin (3-0) claimed the win after relieving starter Tommy Hanson. Durbin struck out the only two men he faced in the sixth inning and Craig Kimbrel came on in the ninth to record his 19th save.
