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.

Matt Kemp added two hits and an RBI to help the Braves take two of three, 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 its last 11 overall.

Adam Wainwright (9-6) had a rare off-day against Atlanta, surrendering three runs in the first and second. He entered 8-2 with a 2.95 ERA against the Braves, who drafted him in the first round in 2000 and traded him to St. Louis in 2003 in a deal for J.D. Drew.

The Cardinals are just 26-32 at home after going 55-26 last season, but have been good on the road at 32-21.

Foltynewicz (5-5) gave up a run and six hits. Jim Johnson earned his eighth save in 11 chances.
