ATLANTA (AP) - Freddie Freeman hit two home runs, Brian McCann added a three-run shot and the Atlanta Braves won their fifth straight game with an 11-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

The Braves, who scored 10 unanswered runs, moved 10 games ahead of second-place Washington on the NL East. They lead the majors with a 36-15 home record.

Freeman had four RBIs with his first multihomer game this season and fourth of his career.

Rookie Alex Wood (1-2) earned his first career victory after allowing six hits, three runs, one walk while striking out seven in seven innings.

Juan Nicasio (6-5) allowed 10 hits, a season-high eight runs, three walks and struck out four in four innings. Colorado has lost 16 of 19 series games against Atlanta.
