The 29-year-old McCann hit his first homer following an Evan Gattis solo shot in the top of the 6th to give the Braves a 6-5 lead. Then in the 10th, McCann connected on 1-0 pitch off of Blue Jays reliever Thad Weber for his sixth long ball of the season.

In the bottom of the 10th, Braves closer Craig Kimbrel led off the inning by walking Adam Lind. But he retired the next three batters to notch his 16th save in 19 attempts.

Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow had to leave the game after pitching two innings due to soreness in his forearm.
