ATLANTA - Freddie Freeman's single to the center-field wall scored Jason Heyward from second base with two outs in the 10th inning on Sunday, lifting the Atlanta Braves to a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto and Atlanta's Julio Teheran each allowed only three hits in eight scoreless innings before giving way to relievers.

With two outs in the 10th, Heyward hit a single up the middle off J.J. Hoover (1-3). B.J. Upton followed with a grounder that bounced off Hoover's glove toward shortstop for an infield hit.

Left-hander Manny Parra was summoned to face Freeman, who hit a drive that bounced on the warning track beyond center fielder Billy Hamilton's reach.
