ATLANTA (AP) -- Freddie Freeman hit a three-run homer, his fourth
of the series, and the Atlanta Braves beat Colorado 6-3 Thursday to
complete their first four-game sweep of the Rockies in 18 years.

Jason Heyward also homered for the streaking Braves, who have
won nine of 10 and 14 of 17 as they head into a series with NL
East-leading Philadelphia.

Freeman, the rookie first baseman, hit four homers and drove in
seven runs in the series. His third-inning homer was the highlight
of a five-run inning that knocked Juan Nicasio (3-2) out of the
game. Nicasio gave up six straight hits in the inning.

Colorado has lost five straight and left Atlanta with more
injury woes.

The depleted Rockies had outfielder Charlie Blackmon break a
bone in his left foot while running the bases in the third inning.
