CINCINNATI: Atlanta’s Dan Uggla hit a pair of solo homers and Juan Francisco added his first career grand slam as the Braves avenged a stunning last-swing loss the previous day and beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-2 on Wednesday.

In other games, Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees stayed locked together atop the American League East by beating Kansas City Royals and Colorado Rockies respectively, while Washington Nationals continued their good form by beating Detroit.

Minnesota Twins scored seven runs in the second inning to set up a rout of Boston Red Sox 15-8, Texas Rangers were aided by two base-running blunders in beating Milwaukee Brewers 4-1.

A day after giving up a pair of two-out ninth-inning homers, Atlanta responded with a victory that gave the Braves two games out of three to inflict Cincinnati’s first loss in a home series this season.
