All-Star Freeman's 4 RBIs help Braves top Reds 6-5

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Freddie Freeman celebrated his newly won All-Star berth by driving in four runs with three hits and the Atlanta Braves beat Mat Latos and the Cincinnati Reds 6-5 on Thursday night.
    
Freeman held off Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig to win the fan voting for the final spot on NL All-Star roster. The first baseman drove in two runs with a first-inning double and added run-scoring singles in the second and fourth innings.
    
Justin Upton also had three hits to help Tim Hudson (6-7) earn his second straight win. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 25th save.
    
Latos (8-3) lasted only four innings in his shortest start of the season.
    
Braves right fielder Jason Heyward left the game in the second inning with a strained right hamstring.
