Braves stay hot at home, beat Rockies 11-3

July 31st, 2013 - By Steve James

Freddie Freeman hit two home runs,

Brian McCann added a three-run shot and the Atlanta Braves won

their fifth straight game with an 11-3 victory over the Colorado

Rockies on Tuesday night.

The Braves, who scored 10 unanswered runs, moved 10

games ahead of second-place Washington on the NL East. They lead

the majors with a 36-15 home record.

Freeman had four RBIs with his first multihomer game

this season and fourth of his career.

Rookie Alex Wood (1-2) earned his first career

victory after allowing six hits, three runs, one walk while

striking out seven in seven innings.

Juan Nicasio (6-5) allowed 10 hits, a season-high

eight runs, three walks and struck out four in four innings.

Colorado has lost 16 of 19 series games against Atlanta.
