    Not much to smile about for Clayton Richard and the Padres Tuesday in Atlanta.

    Atlanta starter Tim Hudson (12-4) pitched a gem. He combined with three relievers on a five hit shutout of the Padres.

    Friars starter Clayton Richard (9-12) left the game after six plus innings trailing 3-0. His replacement, Brad Boxberger promptly gave up a three run homer to Martin Prado that put the game out of reach.

    In the eighth Padres rookie Tom Layne made his major league debut. The 27-year old, just called up from Double-A San Antonio, made the most of his chance. He struck out the side on 16 pitches.

    The Braves held on to win it 6-0. The two teams play game three of their four game series Wednesday evening.
