Nicasio loses his edge in Atlanta

Freeman hits 2 homers to give Braves No. 5 in a row
Freddie Freeman got a couple of standing ovations in the Atlanta Braves’ dugout Tuesday night: He homered twice, inluding a three-run shot – his 13th this season – that provided the final 11-3 margin of victory over the Colorado Rockies in Atlanta.
Rockies rumpus

Colorado LHP Jeff Francis allowed three hits and two runs in 2 1/3 innings. It was Francis’ second relief appearance in 217 career games and first since Oct. 3, 2010, against St. Louis. ... Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he still hasn’t decided who will start the series finale Thursday opposite Atlanta RHP Julio Teheran. ... Rookie OF Todd Cunningham, a top Braves prospect, was cheered loudly after singling in the seventh in his first major league at-bat. Cunningham’s contract was purchased earlier in the day from Triple-A Gwinnett when OF Reed Johnson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left heel tendinitis. Cunningham stayed in the game and replaced fellow rookie Evan Gattis in left field.
