      Heyward powers Braves to sweep of Cardinals.


      Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs to help the Atlanta Braves beat St. Louis 5-2 on Sunday night, capping their first three-game sweep of the Cardinals at home in 10 years.


      The Braves broke a 2-all tie with two runs in the sixth inning off rookie Shelby Miller (10-7) and two relievers.


      Pinch-hitter Joey Terdoslavich drove in Chris Johnson with the go-ahead run and Heyward added another run-scoring single.


      Heyward has nine homers this season, including two in the series between NL division leaders.


      Kris Medlen (7-10) allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk in six innings to snap his three-game losing streak.
