ATLANTA — Kris Medlen stuck to his game plan through the longest losing streak of his career: Keep games close and give Atlanta's powerful offense a chance to come through. Finally, the lineup showed up in a big way on Monday night. Brian McCann, Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman each hit a two-run homer, leading Medlen and the Braves to a 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
