ATLANTA (AP) -- Chipper Jones drove in five runs during the
Atlanta Braves 14-7 pounding of Cincinnati that completed a
three-game sweep over the visiting Reds. It's the Reds fifth
straight loss, with all of them coming on the road.

The Braves outscored the Reds 25-8 in the series. Jones hit a three-run homer off Bronson Arroyo in a seven-run second inning. The Reds starter lasted only 1 1-3 innings in dropping to 1-and-4. It's the shortest of his 166 career starts. The Reds, who had another five-game road losing streak in April, have lost 12 of 18 road games overall. The Braves, who matched their season high with 15 hits in Saturday's 9-1 win, set a new high with 19.
