ATLANTA -- Fredi Gonzalez gave three struggling stars a chance to relax. Fill-in starters Ramiro Pena, Jordan Schafer and Evan Gattis then showed the slumping regulars that hitting isnt so difficult. Pena drove in four runs with three hits, including a run-scoring single in the sixth that gave Atlanta the lead, Mike Minor pitched seven strong innings and the Braves makeshift lineup had a season-high 16 hits in an 11-3 win over R.A. Dickey and the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night. Freddie Freeman and Reed Johnson homered, Gattis had three hits and Schafer had two hits, including a two-run single in the sixth. "We are trying to do our job, you know," Pena said. "We want to play well also. I think we got great ABs and we produced." Pena, Schafer and Gattis made the most of fill-in starts as Gonzalez rested three regulars hitting below .200: outfielders B.J. Upton and Jason Heyward and second baseman Dan Uggla. Gonzalez wouldnt say after the game if he would hold out the regulars again when the Braves open a weekend series against the Washington Nationals on Friday night. "Well see," Gonzalez said. "The guys played well. One thing you always want to do is put your best team out there." Minor (7-2) gave up six hits and three runs -- two earned -- with five strikeouts and no walks in winning his fourth straight decision. Dickey (4-7) allowed 11 hits and six runs in six innings. It was Dickeys fourth start allowing six or more runs this season, leaving his ERA at 5.18 one season after he won the NL Cy Young Award with the Mets. Dickey said he gave up a lot of soft hits. "I might have given up four hard-hit balls all night," Dickey said. "I mean, it was tough. It seemed like every ball off the bat would find a hole somewhere, or a little space in the outfield. "This games tough. Its hard. And you cant quit grinding it out, and you cant quit searching for the answers. I certainly wont. And Ill find it. Ill find it." The Blue Jays scored three runs in the sixth to pull even at 3, but the Braves scored three runs off Dickey in the bottom of the inning. Penas infield single drove in Gattis, who led off with a single. Schafer singled with two outs to drive in Chris Johnson, who reached on a fielders choice grounder, and Pena. Toronto manager John Gibbons said Dickeys velocity on his knuckleball is down. "Hes been battling that, trying to find it," Gibbons said. "He battles you out there. I know thats frustrating him." One day after a 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays, the Braves made some lineup changes. Third baseman Juan Francisco, who was sharing time with Chris Johnson, was designated for assignment. Francisco was hitting .241 with five homers, 16 RBIs and 43 strikeouts in 108 at-bats. The Braves have 10 days to trade, release or send Francisco outright to the minors. Schafer, who hit leadoff and started in centre field for Upton, had a first-inning double that bounced over third baseman Mark DeRosa. Schafer scored on Andrelton Simmons single to left. Gattis, starting in left field, led off the second by slapping a single to right field. Gattis scored on a single to left by Pena, who started for Uggla. Heyward, pinch-hitting in the seventh, reached on catchers interference when his bat hit J.P. Arencibias glove. Freeman pushed the lead to 3-0 in the third with his two-out homer off Dickey. The homer came on the night fans received Freeman bobblehead dolls. Toronto pulled even in the sixth. Dickey led off with an infield single and moved to second when Simmons misplayed Jose Bautistas grounder for an error. Edwin Encarnacion drove in Dickey with a single to centre field and DeRosa added a two-run double to right field. Reed Johnson hit a pinch-hit, two-run homer off Todd Redmond in the eighth, capping the impressive show of depth on the Braves roster. "Its a deep team position-wise," Gonzalez said. "There are some days that the guys sitting on the bench may be better than the guys on the field and vice versa. Youve got to take every opportunity and put guys out there." Gonzalez remains confident in Upton, Uggla and Heyward. "Youve got to believe the back of the baseball cards, and theyre good players," Gonzalez said. "It may not even be the end of June. It may be the middle of June or five days from now. Who knows? But those bench guys are playing well." NOTES: The Braves selected the contract of LHP Alex Wood from Double-A Mississippi. Wood, a 2012 second-round pick from the University of Georgia, pitched the ninth, allowing one hit, in his major league debut. ... Atlanta improved to 22-3 when scoring first. ...

New York saw it all from Conor McGregor.On Saturday night, McGregor (21-3) became the first fighter in mixed martial arts history to hold multiple UFC titles at the same time. Already the featherweight champion, McGregor knocked out?Eddie Alvarez?at 3:04 of the second round to become the lightweight champion at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden. It was the first UFC event held in the venue.One of the most staggering achievements in the history of the sport was made even more so by how effortless McGregor made it look. Alvarez never had a chance.Theyre not on my level, McGregor said. Youve got to have size, reach, length. Youve got to have some attributes. If you dont, I will rip your head off. Thats what I say every time.The final sequence began with Alvarez (28-5), a former Bellator MMA champion with one of the most decorated résumés of all time at 155 pounds, overcommitting on a punch.McGregor, 28, slipped the punch and dropped Alvarez with a quick combination. Referee John McCarthy gave Alvarez a chance to recover, but it was clear he was finished, and it didnt take much more offense from McGregor for McCarthy to step in and stop the fight.McGregor scored three knockdowns in the first three minutes of the fight. The first came about one minute in, courtesy of his infamous left hand. Despite being dropped three times in the first round, Alvarez, a Philadelphia native, somehow bounced to his feet after each and appeared to recover his balance quickly.The onslaught from McGregor just never stopped. The only time Alvareez managed to slow things down came in the second round, when he was able to pin McGregor along the fence for a short period of time.dddddddddddd.McGregor announced at the postfight news conference he is expecting the birth of his first child in early 2017. He intends to take a break until then, and expects the new owners of the UFC at WME-IMG to reach out to him in the meantime.Have this baby, take a little bit of time and see what way I feel after that, McGregor said. Theyve got to come talk to me now. No one has come talk to me since the sale [in July] happened -- as a businessman.Who owns the company? People have shares of the company, celebrities. Conan OBrien owns the UFC these days. Wheres my share? Wheres my equity? If Im the one bringing this, theyve got to come talk to me. Thats all I know. You want me to stick around and keep doing what Im doing? I want what I deserve. What Ive earned.UFC president Dana White seemed to agree with McGregor about his special status after Saturday nights performance.This aint hype. This is real, man, White said. Everybody said that the kink in his armor was wrestling, and when he meets a guy who can wrestle hes in big trouble -- not one takedown tonight. Defended everything.You know, Eddie Alvarez was saying Santa Claus isnt real. Santa Claus is back, you know what I mean? The guy is special. And whats next? Well let him enjoy this moment. Im gonna enjoy this moment. And well talk business later. ' ' '
