Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Freddie Freeman hit a pair of two-run home runs and drove in five runs, and Mike Minor pitched a career high eight innings, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 10-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night.

The Braves scored three runs in the sixth and eighth innings, highlighted by a two-run single by Juan Francisco in the sixth and Martin Prado's eighth-inning, two-run double. Freeman has 10 RBIs in his past three games.

Diamondbacks starter Josh Collmenter (0-1) had his longest outing of the season after struggling in his first two. He was charged with four earned runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings Thursday, dropping his earned run average to 10.22.
