Freeman HR, 5 RBIs as Braves top Twins for 2-game sweep

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Braves have struggled to score runs this year, ranking last in the majors in that department. As a result, it's been rare that an Atlanta starting pitcher has been gifted an early lead to work with.

Thanks to Freddie Freeman, the Braves bucked both trends Wednesday night.

Freeman homered, doubled and tied a career high with five RBIs as the Braves held off the Twins 9-7 for a two-game sweep.
