Braves 4, Padres 1

Win, win, win.

Mike Soroka threw 7 scoreless innings, and Freddie Freeman broke open a scoreless game in the top of the 8th with a 3 run homer. Singles by Matt Joyce and Ronald Acuna Jr. preceded Freeman’s 24th. The Braves tacked on a run after the rally-killer, when Josh Donaldson walked, and got into 2 out scoring position with a belly-flopping steal of second. The Bringer of Earthquakes then scored on a Nick Markakis single.

The Padres concluded the scoring in the bottom of the inning.
