It's hard to describe the offensive roll the Atlanta Braves have been on during their six-game winning streak. They blew up in a seven-run third inning to trample the Colorado Rockies 9-0 Wednesday night at Turner Field.
Freeman started the scoring in the first and third innings with RBI-singles. Evan Gattis produced an RBI-single before McCann's homer saw the Braves score six runs in the third before Tyler Chatwood produced an out. Chris Johnson singled and Andrelton Simmons doubled, leading to Mike Minor and his RBI-single chasing Chatwood from the game after 2 2/3 innings.
While Minor did help himself, he definitely did it.
Minor faced the minimum through four innings, eventually completing seven innings. He only gave up two singles and struck out six, issuing no walks and allowing no Rockies baserunners past first base.
On an interesting note, both of Freeman's four-hit games have been against the Rockies.
The Braves have now scored six or more runs in an inning in three straight games for the second time this year. Their recent outburst has put them 11 games in front of the Washington Nationals in the National League East.
