NCAA Jerseys For Sale . "It seems like we always get a couple of guys on, and were one swing away," he said. "Theres nine innings, so were not ever going to get down. Weve done that this year." Freeman hit two homers, 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.

Atlanta scored six runs with two out in the fourth inning to make it 8-3 on Jason Heywards RBI single, Evan Gattis two-run double and McCanns 14th homer. Rookie Alex Wood (1-2) earned his first career victory, allowing six hits, three runs and one walk while striking out seven in seven innings. Wood overcame a couple of obstacles. First was a blister on his left index finger that began to bleed and hindered his location. Second was relying too much on his curveball early in the game and not as much on his changeup. But visiting in the dugout pitching coach Roger McDowell and the team trainer corrected both issues. "I dont think it really had an effect," Wood said. "We had a game plan going in. That was just a small hiccup. I couldve been anything out there." Juan Nicasio (6-5) gave up 10 hits and a season-high eight runs, walking four and striking out four in four innings.

NCAA Basketball Jerseys. "Weve got to put innings away, weve got to put games away." Freemans 13th homer, a three-run shot off Edgmer Escalona, put the Braves up 11-3. In 67 games since May 15, Freeman is hitting .311 with 11 homers and 50 RBIs. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez can sense other players feeding off Freemans success. "When you keep the line moving and keep having good, quality at-bats, we can do that," Gonzalez said. "We can do that people. Weve got that kind of offence." Colorados Michael Cuddyer singled in the seventh and tried to score from first on Wilin Rosarios double, but was tagged out at the plate. Heyward overran the ball in left-centre after it took a bad hop and had to turn back two steps to pick it up, but his relay to Andrelton Simmons was on time, and Cuddyer was cut down on McCanns tag. "I knew I didnt have a lot of time," Simmons said. "I didnt want to overthrow him and cause all that, so just tried to keep it low and get as much as I could on it." NOTES: Rookie OF Todd Cunningham, a top Braves prospect, was cheered loudly after singling in the seventh in his first major league at-bat. Cunninghams contract was purchased earlier in the day from Triple-A Gwinnett when OF Reed Johnson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left heel tendinitis. Cunningham stayed in the game and replaced Gattis in left field. ... Colorado LHP Jeff Francis allowed three hits and two runs in 2 1-3 innings.
