Ryan Doumit's two-run single capped a three- run rally in the seventh inning that lifted the Atlanta Braves to a 5-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the finale of a four-game series Thursday.

Atlanta's winning rally came during a long and sometimes tedious half inning that included a more than seven-minute delay over a mixed up pitching change, a successful Braves challenge overturning a force out and an infield RBI double by Gerald Laird.

B.J. Upton hit a solo homer and Chris Johnson had three hits for the Braves, who won three games in the series.

Aaron Harang gave up four runs and struck out five in 5 1/3 innings and Alex Wood (4-5) pitched a scoreless seventh for the win. Craig Kimbrel hit Logan Schafer leading off the ninth, then struck out the next three batters for his 12th save.

Jonathan Lucroy had two RBI and Jean Segura finished with three hits and two runs scored for the Brewers, who fell to 2-5 in a 10-game road trip.
