Juan Francisco's slam send Braves over Reds 7-2
Dan Uggla hit a pair of solo homers and Juan Francisco added his first career grand slam as the Atlanta Braves recovered from a stunning last-swing loss by beating the Cincinnati Reds 7-2 Wednesday.
Atlanta took two of three, the first series the Reds lost at home this season.
Devin Mesoraco and Shin-Soo Choo hit two-out homers in the ninth for Cincinnati's 5-4 win on Tuesday. A day later, one of the NL's top power teams got the better of it.
Uggla had solo shots in the fourth and sixth off Mike Leake (2-2). Francisco's slam off J.J. Hoover highlighted a five-run eighth. The Braves got Francisco from the Reds last year for Hoover.
Mike Minor (4-2) allowed four hits in seven innings, including Zack Cozart's solo homer.
