    In 2013, the Padres went 7-12 against the Colorado Rockies, who might finish in last place in the National League West. So how is it possible the Padres are now 4-0 against the Atlanta Braves, who might finish with the best record in all of baseball?

    Whatever the reason, Padres fans will take it. The Friars came back from a 3-0 deficit against the best bullpen in baseball, against the team with the best home record in baseball, to beat the Braves 4-3 on Friday night.

    Chase Headley led off the 8th inning with a solo home run off Jordan Walden (on a 96-MPH fastball, no less) to tie things at 3-3. Later in that inning, Logan Forsythe singled to bring home Tommy Medica with the go-ahead run.

    Luke Gregerson and Huston Street made it stand up. Street worked a perfect 9th inning to get his 30th save, just the 3rd time he's reached that number.

    Padres starter Ian Kennedy allowed three runs in six innings and got a no-decision.
