Freese's 6 RBIs, Cards give Braves 9th loss in row

By  | 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Rookie David Freese homered, doubled and drove
in six runs as the St. Louis Cardinals sent Atlanta to its ninth
straight loss, beating the Braves 10-4 Thursday.

The Braves wrapped up an 0-7 road trip, their first winless
swing of seven or more games since September 1949 when the
franchise was located in Boston and went 0-8 in Philadelphia and
Brooklyn.

Adam Wainwright (4-1) worked six solid innings as the Cardinals
completed a four-game sweep, their first against Atlanta since
1993.

Jair Jurrjens (0-3) strained his left hamstring and lasted only
one inning for Atlanta. The Braves lost 10 in a row in 2006.
