HOUSTON -- After a tough June where Justin Upton has hit under .200, the Atlanta Braves hope the last two games are an indication that hell get back to where he was earlier this season. Upton homered for the second straight game and drove in three runs and Alex Wood pitched seven scoreless innings to help the Braves to a 4-0 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. "When he gets hot like this its really, really something to watch," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Hopefully this is the beginning of one of those big runs that he can give us." Upton is hitting just .185 this month, but his average for the season is .272 after a great start to the year. "Im seeing the ball and hitting it, thats about it," Upton said. "Ive gotten some good pitches to hit and Ive put good swings on them." Shae Simmons and Juan Jaime finished the three-hitter as the Astros were shut out for the 10th time this season. The Braves had just two hits when Upton launched his 16th homer, a two-run shot into the bullpen in right-centre, to make it 3-0 in the seventh inning. Collin McHugh (4-6) had plunked Jason Heyward to set up things for Upton. Upton drove in Atlantas first run on a sacrifice fly in the second inning.

"Theyve got some good ice cream in there, at least get a scoop of ice cream." Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman left in the eighth after being hit by a pitch on what appeared to be his right elbow. He was examined by a doctor and said he was fine and hoped the swelling wasnt too bad on Thursday so he could play. Wood (6-6) was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett to make his first start since May 4 after appearing in 11 games out of the bullpen in his last stint with the Braves. He allowed three hits and struck out four with one walk. "He did a nice job," Gonzalez said. "Mixed all his pitches ... his breaking ball, his fastball, threw some nice change ups." Gonzalez was encouraged by Woods performaance in filling in for Gavin Floyd, who had surgery this week after breaking a bone in his throwing elbow. Nike Shoes Sale. Simmons and Jaime struck out two apiece in a hitless inning apiece. McHugh struck out nine in his third straight loss.

Upton doubled and took third on a balk before scoring on a groundout by Tommy La Stella to push Atlantas lead to 4-0 in the eighth. Evan Gattis doubled to start the second and scored on the one-out sacrifice fly by Justin Upton. McHugh walked a pair in the fourth inning, but the Braves didnt get another hit until Freeman singled with two outs in the sixth. Freeman was tagged out trying to stretch it into a double to end the inning. Dexter Fowler hit a leadoff double in the first, and was thrown out at third trying to advance on Jose Altuves grounder. Houston didnt get another runner until rookie Jon Singleton snapped an 0-for-17 skid with a ground-rule double to right-centre field with two outs in the fourth. The ball got lodged under the wall and Singleton was already heading toward home when he was called back to second base. Wood got right back on track after Singletons hit and set down the next five Astros before walking Fowler with one out in the sixth.

FLORHAM PARK, N. NMD Outlet .J. -- The New York Jets re-signed veteran guard Willie Colon to a one-year deal Wednesday. The 30-year-old Colon will return after starting at right guard in all 16 games last season. He is recovering from a torn right biceps suffered in the season finale, but expects to be healthy in time for training camp in late-July if not minicamp in June. "My rehab is going really well, things are going really well, and all thumbs are up," Colon said during a conference call. "So Im being smart about it, taking my time, rebuilding it and getting ready for training camp." Joe Linta, Colons agent, confirmed the deal is for $2 million. "Willie loves the Jets," Linta said in an email to The Associated Press. "He wanted to stay with them." Colon helped block for the Jets running game, which finished second in the AFC with 2,158 yards during the regular season. Chris Ivory (833) and Bilal Powell (697) each set career highs in yards rushing. The Bronx, N.Y., native and former Hofstra University standout thanked the Jets on Twitter, saying hes glad to "be back home." Colon added that Atlanta and Minnesota showed initial interest when the NFLs free agency period began last week. "They kind of backed off the table," he said. "Everything else was sort of wish-wash, so to speak. There were rumours about other teams, but nothing was really solid on the table." The eight-year pro spent his first seven seasons with Pittsburgh and signed with the Jets as an unrestricted free agent last March. Joining Colon on the right side will be former Seattle Seahawks tackle Breno Giacomini, who signed with the Jets last week and will replace Austin Howard, who signed with Oakland.
