|Cards Hand Braves Ninth Straight Loss
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Rookie David Freese homered, doubled and drove in six runs as the St. Louis Cardinals sent Atlanta to its ninth straight loss, beating the Braves 10-4 Thursday.
The Braves wrapped up an 0-7 road trip, their first winless swing of seven or more games since September 1949 when the franchise was located in Boston and went 0-8 in Philadelphia and Brooklyn.
Adam Wainwright (4-1) worked six solid innings as the Cardinals completed a four-game sweep, their first against Atlanta since 1993.
Jair Jurrjens (0-3) strained his left hamstring and lasted only one inning for Atlanta. The Braves lost 10 in a row in 2006.
