The lefty stayed in to face the left-handed hitting Johnson, who lashed an offspeed pitch just inside the right field line to clear the bases.
After Willis' nine scoreless but shaky innings since his arrival in Arizona, his lack of control caught up with him in the fourth. He walked Glaus and Yunel Escobar to start the inning and runners moved up on a wild pitch. Omar Infante's sacrifice fly brought Glaus home, then Escobar scored on Ross' RBI single.
Willis gave up two runs and three hits, throwing 95 pitches in four innings. He walked six with two wild pitches, two balks and two strikeouts.
NOTES: McLouth had the day off after his collision with RF Jason Heyward Wednesday night. McLouth's head slammed to the ground on the play. ... Willis had 3-0 counts on the first three batters and four of the first five. He walked three of them. .... The Braves are 4-4 on their longest trip of the season, which ends with three at Minnesota.
