ATLANTA (AP) - Rookie Alex Wood pitched five-plus strong innings, Elliot Johnson had a two-run triple and the Atlanta Braves beat the Cleveland Indians 2-0 on Tuesday night.


The Braves have won two straight, improving the majors' best record to 79-52. They have won 14 of 17 at Turner Field and own baseball's home mark at 45-18.


Closer Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth to earn his 42nd save, most in the majors, in 45 chances.


He struck out Drew Stubbs and retired pinch-hitter Lonnie Chisenhall and Michael Bourn on groundouts.


Atlanta took a 2-0 lead in the second inning. Brian McCann walked with one out, advanced to third on Joey Terdoslavich's single to right field, and both runners scored when Johnson tripled over Stubbs near the wall in right.


Wood (3-2) allowed five hits, a career-high four walks and struck out five in 5 2-3 innings.
