Mike Foltynewicz worked six strong innings, Nick Markakis and Erick Aybar had two RBIs apiece and the Atlanta Braves kept the St. Louis Cardinals down at home with a 6-3 victory on Sunday at Busch Stadium. The Braves won for the second straight day as Matt Kemp added two hits and an RBI to help the Braves take two of three games in the series, outscoring the Cardinals 19-8 the last two games. Atlanta has the worst record in the majors at 41-70, but has won seven of it last 11 overall. Adam Wainwright (9-6) had a rare off-day against Atlanta, giving up six runs in the first two innings of the game. The loss drops the Cardinals to just 26-32 at home after going 55-26 at Busch Stadium last season. Foltynewicz (5-5) gave up a run and six hits. Jim Johnson earned his eighth save in 11 chances.
