The Atlanta Braves ended their road trip on a good note with a 13-8 win and a series victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

Ender Inciarte and Danny Santana fueled a 14 hit attack for the Braves who went to work early against Reds starter Adam Garrett. Atlanta scored nine runs over the first three innings and made it hold up to seal the win.

Inciarte went 5-for-5 including a three-run home run and drove in five runs for Atlanta. Santana started in place of Nick Markakis on Sunday and went 4-for-5 finishing a triple shy of a cycle. Matt Adams went 2-for-5 at the plate and launched his third home run of the series in the third.

Atlanta’s offensive outburst helped overcome another shaky performance by Julio Teheran. Teheran surrendered 11 hits and seven earned runs over five innings of work.

Ian Krol worked two solid innings of relief and Luke Jackson closed things out in the ninth for the Braves.

Reds starter Adam Garrett lasted just 2 23 innings in his return from the disabled list allowing seven hits and eight earned runs. Zack Cozart went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBIs for Cincinnati.

Atlanta finishes the road trip with a 4-5 record. They will be back at SunTrust Park on Monday where they will open a four-game set against the Philadelphia Phillies.
