Astros Vs. Braves Final Score: Justin Maxwell Hits A Pair Of Home Runs In Win Over Atlanta

Houston Astros centerfielder Justin Maxwell single handedly defeated the Atlanta Braves as he went 4-for-4 with a pair of home runs, three RBI's and two runs. Both home runs came off of Paul Maholm who was making his first start for the Atlanta Braves since being traded from the Chicago Cubs.

With the score 2-0 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning, the Braves were able to tie the game at Dan Uggla hit a two-RBI single off of Lucas Harrell. Maxwell's second home run came in the following inning and proved to be the game winners.

Outside of the two-RBI single that Harrell allowed, he pitched well as he allowed only four total hits and struck out five to improve his record to 9-7.
