ATLANTA (AP) - Freddie Freeman hit a three-run homer, one of four by Atlanta, and the Braves beat the Oakland Athletics 7-2 on Friday night in the opening game of the interleague series.

Justin Upton and Evan Gattis hit homers off Jason Hammel (1-5) in the second inning. Rookie Phil Gosselin hit a two-run homer, the first of his career, off Jesse Chavez in the sixth.

It was a rare power surge for the Braves, who had not scored more than four runs in any of their past six games.

The Braves entered the game having lost 12 of 15.

Alex Wood (9-9) allowed only two runs in six innings - a two-run homer by Nate Freiman in the fourth.

The A's have lost three straight and five of six.
