Braves knock out Arroyo early, sweep Reds

ATLANTA (AP) - Chipper Jones drove in five runs and the Atlanta Braves scored seven runs in the second inning and beat the Cincinnati Reds 14-7 yesterday to complete a three-game sweep.

Jones hit his ninth homer -- a three-run shot off Bronson Arroyo in the seven-run second. Kelly Johnson was 4-for-6 and Mark Kotsay was 3-for-4 with a homer.

The Braves outscored the Reds 25-8 in the three games, giving Cincinnati its fifth straight loss -- all on the road.

The Reds, who had another five-game road losing streak in April, have lost 12 of 18 road games overall.

The Braves, who matched their season high with 15 hits in Saturday's 9-1 win, set a new high with 19.
