ATLANTA (AP) -- Freddie Freeman hit a three-run homer and the Braves beat the Miami Marlins 9-4 on Sunday.

B.J. Upton drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly and Chris Johnson hit a two-run double in the four-run seventh inning that broke open a tie game. Jason Heyward had four hits, including a run-scoring single in the eighth.

Evan Gattis had three, including his run-scoring double in the seventh.

Mike Minor (12-5) gave up four runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings, ended a streak of six straight starts with no more than two earned runs allowed.

The Braves took two of three in the series after their 14-game winning streak ended in a 1-0 loss to the Marlins on Saturday night.

Braves outfielder Justin Upton left the game in the fifth inning with cramping in his left hamstring.
