CINCINNATI (AP) ― Dan Uggla and Juan Francisco helped Atlanta quickly forget a terrible ending.

Uggla hit a pair of solo homers and Francisco added his first career grand slam as the Braves recovered from a stunning last-swing loss by beating the Cincinnati Reds 7-2 Wednesday.

Atlanta took two of three in the series, the first the Reds lost at home this season. The Reds are 13-6 at Great American Ball Park, the most home wins the majors.

Devin Mesoraco and Choo Shin-soo hit two-out homers in the ninth inning for Cincinnati’s 5-4 win on Tuesday night. A day later, one of the NL’s top power teams got the better of it. Atlanta came into the game tied with Colorado for the NL lead with 44 homers. “A good win after what happened last night,” manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “Good resilience with this club.”
