ATLANTA (AP) — Freddie Freeman homered, doubled and tied a career high with five RBIs, powering the Atlanta Braves past the New York Mets 13-5 on Monday.

Freeman put the Braves ahead with a two-run double off Daisuke Matsuzaka in the first inning. Freeman made it 6-1 with a three-run homer a dozen rows deep into the right-field seats in the second.

Jordan Schafer got four hits and stole three bases for Atlanta before leaving with a lower back strain. Andrelton Simmons drove in three runs.

The NL East-leading Braves, who matched their season high for runs, have won seven of eight.

The Braves have recalled right-hander Kameron Loe from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Loe, originally signed by the Braves on May 11, is making his second appearance with Atlanta. He allowed three runs in 2 2-3 innings over two games before he was designated for assignment on July 29. After clearing waivers, Loe was assigned to Gwinnett where he was 4-4 with a 3.07 ERA in 27 games.

The 31-year-old Loe is 33-42 in nine seasons with Texas, Milwaukee, Seattle, the Cubs and Braves.
