ATLANTA (AP) — Dansby Swanson hit two home runs and the Atlanta Braves built a big lead early before holding off the San Francisco Giants 7-6 Thursday for their 18th win in 21 games this month. Travis d’Arnaud hit a two-run single in a five-run second inning as the Braves tagged Alex Wood (5-6). The defending World Series champion Braves moved 11 games over .500 for the first time this season. Puk threw a pair of run-scoring wild pitches with two outs in the ninth that gave Seattle a win over Oakland. Kershaw (5-1) allowed one run and seven hits in six innings.
