MLB: Atlanta 6, Kansas City 3

April 16, 2013 at 10:32 PM   |   Comments

ATLANTA, April 16 (UPI) -- Jason Heyward, Justin Upton and Dan Uggla each homered in the eighth inning Tuesday, sending Atlanta to its 10th straight win, 6-3 over Kansas City.

Hayward's blast broke a 3-3 tie and Upton followed by clouting a pitch deep into the left field stands for his eighth round-tripper of the year.

One out later, Uggla followed with the third homer of the inning off Kelvin Herrera (1-1).

Juan Francisco supplied two more solo shots for Atlanta, which has posted its longest winning streak since a 15-gamer in 2000.

Reliever Eric O'Flaherty (3-0) got the decision after starter Kris Medlen yielded just one earned run on six hits over seven innings.

Chris Getz went deep for the Royals.
