King Felix Dethroned By Atlanta Braves


Sports Writer

SEATTLE - Freddie Freeman knocked around Felix Hernandez for three hits and two RBIs, and the Atlanta Braves beat Seattle 5-3 on Wednesday to complete an impressive three-game sweep that included victories over the Mariners' best starting pitchers.

The Braves won for the eighth time in 10 games and picked up their 25th road victory of the season. They handed losses to Hernandez, rookie star Michael Pineda and Erik Bedard during their rare trip to Seattle.

Freeman started a two-out rally in the fourth inning, punching a single into left against Hernandez (8-7) and scoring on Brooks Conrad's grounder back up the middle. Freeman capped the Braves' three-run fifth with a two-run single to right.

Derek Lowe (4-6) pitched six innings for Atlanta.
