Freeman powers Braves past Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Freddie Freeman homered, doubled and drove in all four Atlanta runs to back Julio Teheran's strong pitching and lead the Braves over the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 Friday night.

Teheran (7-5) allowed two runs - one earned - and six hits in seven innings. He struck out nine, walked none and retired his final seven batters for Atlanta, which had lost six of 10 beginning with Philadelphia's three-game sweep at Turner Field last week.

Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless ninth for his 23rd save in 27 chances.

Ben Revere had three hits, including a triple, for the Phillies, who have lost five of seven.

Braves catcher Evan Gattis left the game in the first inning after apparently injuring his shoulder swinging at a pitch.
