LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dan Uggla had two homers and four RBIs, Freddie Freeman drove in three more runs with a double, and Mike Minor kept the Atlanta Braves' rotation rolling with six solid innings in an 8-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

Minor (8-2) allowed a run and six hits, struck out six and walked three while helping the NL East leaders gain a split of the 4-game series. The left-hander is 5-0 with a 1.76 ERA over his last seven starts.

Atlanta's rotation has yielded four runs in 37 1-3 innings spanning the team's last six games. The stretch includes eight innings of 1-hit ball by rookie Julio Teheran - who came within four outs of a no-hitter on Wednesday against Pittsburgh - and back-to-back starts by Tim Hudson and Paul Maholm in which each allowed one run in Braves losses.
