ATLANTA - Chris Johnson singled to left with two outs in the ninth inning for his first career walk-off hit and the Atlanta Braves won again at home, beating the Cleveland Indians 3-2 on Wednesday night.

The Braves improved to 46-18 at Turner Field, the best home record in the majors.
Mike Aviles homered and drove in both Cleveland runs.
Craig Kimbrel (3-2) earned the win with a perfect ninth.
