Braves Snap Long Losing Skid Against the Padres

Atlanta finally finds a way to win at Petco Park

Padres 1st baseman Wil Myers hit a pair of tape measure home runs but his output was the entirety of the offense in a 4-2 loss to the Braves. The win was a long time coming for Atlanta, who had lost 12 straight games at Petco Park.

San Diego starter Drew Pomeranz, who has been dominant with a 0.74 ERA at home this year, was shaky from the beginning. Four of the first five Braves he faced reached base and two of them scored to put Atlanta up 2-0. Overall Pomeranz was not too bad, allowing three runs 5.0 innings while striking out six.

His counterpart, Braves starter Julio Teheran, was stellar against everyone in the Padres lineup except Myers. Teheran went 8.0 innings, allowing just three singles aside from the two Myers homers.

San Diego has an off day on Thursday then starts a 3-game series in Colorado against the Rockies on Friday night.
