ATLANTA -- Kelly Johnson homered twice and Jeff Francoeur
and Brian McCann also hit home runs as the Atlanta Braves welcomed
Mark Teixeira to town by mauling Houston 12-to-4.
Johnson drove in five runs and McCann drove in four, including a
two-run double in the eighth.
Teixeira was obtained from Texas in a seven-player trade. He was
activated for the game but did not arrive until the seventh inning.
Braves starter Chuck James is 9-and-8 with the win. He gave up
four runs on six hits in five innings.
