Medlen ends skid, Braves beat Pirates 7-2

ATLANTA (AP) - Brian McCann, Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman each hit a two-run homer, helping Kris Medlen and the Atlanta Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-2 on Monday night.

Medlen (2-6) pitched seven solid innings for his first win since April 9, ending a career-worst, 5-game skid over his previous nine starts. The right-hander allowed an unearned run and seven hits, lowering his ERA to 3.14.

Pittsburgh catcher Russell Martin and manager Clint Hurdle were ejected by home plate umpire Dan Iassogna in the fourth inning. Martin apparently complained after Iassogna called two balls on pitches from A.J. Burnett to Medlen.

Burnett (3-6) yielded a season-high six runs in five innings.
