ATLANTA, May 5 (UPI) -- Freddie Freeman and Reed Johnson each drove in three runs to back Tim Hudson's effective start Sunday in Atlanta's 9-4 win over the New York Mets.

Freeman smacked a two-run double and scored on a wild pitch during a five-run third inning while Johnson capped the outburst with a run-scoring single.

Freeman finished with three hits and Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with an RBI as the Braves split a rain-shortened two-game series, snapping a three-game losing streak.

Hudson (4-1) allowed three runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings, issuing one walk while striking out seven.

Mets starter Jonathon Niese (2-3) was roughed up for seven runs on seven hits over four full frames.

David Wright went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer for New York.
