MLB: Atlanta 6, Arizona 2

June 30, 2013 at 5:20 PM   |   Comments

ATLANTA, June 30 (UPI) -- Paul Maholm tossed 6 2/3 efficient innings and Freddie Freeman bashed a three-run homer Sunday in Atlanta's series-sweeping 6-2 victory over Arizona.

Maholm (9-6) allowed two runs on eight hits and a pair of walks as the Braves turned three double plays in the contest. The left-hander struck out three.

Freeman's clout in the third inning with Andrelton Simmons and Justin Upton aboard broke open a 1-1 tie and put the National League East-leading Braves on the path to a three-game sweep of the NL West leaders.

Dan Uggla provided a two-run shot and Brian McCann also went deep for Atlanta, which took a fifth win in six games overall.

Arizona's Trevor Cahill (3-10) was roughed up for six runs on seven hits in a 4 1/3-inning effort.

A.J. Pollock supplied two hits and scored both runs for the Diamondbacks.
