ATLANTA — Mike Minor took advantage of support from unexpected sources — a combined seven hits by three fill-in outfielders and, in an even bigger surprise, his own two-run double. Minor struggled early before recovering to throw seven strong innings, and also hit a go-ahead double that led the Atlanta Braves over Homer Bailey and the Cincinnati Reds 5-2 Saturday. The Braves, who lost starting outfielders Jason Heyward, B.J. Upton and Justin Upton to injuries in the first two games of the series, found success with their fill-ins.
