Freddie Freeman had three RBIs and Justin Upton homered to back Paul Maholm's solid start, helping the Atlanta Braves to a 9-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.

Jason Heyward and rookie Evan Gattis also connected for the Braves, who have hit six homers in winning the first two games of the series.

Roy Halladay (0-1) failed to make it out of the fourth inning and left with Philadelphia trailing 4-0.

The game was played in a steady drizzle, but the conditions hardly affected Maholm (1-0), who gave up six hits in 5 2-3 scoreless innings. He struck out six.
