Five other Braves had two hits apiece against the Astros: Dan Uggla, Joey Terdoslavich, Tyler Pastornicky and Matt Pagnozzi.
Short hops: The Braves face the Yankees for the second time in four days Saturday at 1:05 p.m., with lefty Mike Minor starting against New York right-hander Jose Ramirez. Braves lefties Luis Avilan and Alex Wood are among the other pitchers making the trip, along with Freeman and Uggla among lineup regulars. The starting outfielders – Jason Heyward, Justin and B.J. Upton – weren't on the travel list posted in the clubhouse…. Braves right-hander David Carpenter was charged with four runs and four hits in 1-2/3 innings of the win against Houston. After allowing four hits and five runs in two-thirds of an inning in his spring debut, Carpenter had allowed just one hit in three scoreless innings in his past three appearances before Friday.
