      Cards swept in Atlanta

      ATLANTA (AP) -- Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs to help the Atlanta Braves beat St. Louis 5-2 on Sunday night, capping their first three-game sweep of the Cardinals at home in 10 years.

      The Braves broke a 2-all tie with two runs in the sixth inning off rookie Shelby Miller (10-7) and two relievers. Pinch-hitter Joey Terdoslavich drove in Chris Johnson with the go-ahead run. Heyward added another run-scoring single.

      Heyward has nine homers this season, including two in the series between NL division leaders.

      Kris Medlen (7-10) allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk in six innings to snap his three-game losing streak.
