ATLANTA — Freddie Freeman, Dan Uggla and Brian McCann homered, powering Atlanta Braves past the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-2 Sunday for a three-game sweep in the matchup of division leaders.
Paul Maholm (9-6) gave up two runs and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings for the Braves, who improved to a big league-best 28-11 at home.
Trevor Cahill (3-10) allowed six runs and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings as the NL West-leading Diamondbacks lost for the fifth time in six games. Cahill is 0-6 with a 7.91 ERA in eight starts since a May 17 win at Miami.
