Brian McCann equaled a career high with four hits, including a homer and four RBIs, and Dan Uggla’s broken-bat single in the eighth inning gave the Braves a wild 10-8 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers in Atlanta’s home opener Friday night.

A three-run homer by McCann highlighted a six-run fifth that put the Braves up 8-3. Milwaukee rallied, tying it on Corey Hart’s homer in the eighth.

McCann nearly had five hits, but second baseman Rickie Weeks made a diving grab on a blistering grounder. But Uggla, despite shattering his bat, slipped a slow roller through the drawn-in infield to bring home two runs, snapping an 8-all tie.

Jonny Venters (1-0) earned the win and Craig Kimbrel worked the ninth for his third save.

Francisco Rodriguez (0-1) took the loss.
