Recap: Atlanta vs. San Diego

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Dan Uggla belted a three-run homer, Paul Maholm tossed seven effective innings and the Atlanta Braves topped the San Diego Padres, 6-1, in the third installment of a four-game set at Turner Field.

Jason Heyward contributed a two-run double and Martin Prado collected three hits for Atlanta, which has won five of its last seven games.

"It's good to keep winning, bottom line," Heyward said.

Maholm (11-7) held San Diego to five hits, walked three and struck out seven. Logan Forsythe's home run was the southpaw's lone blemish.

The struggles continued for San Diego's Edinson Volquez (7-9) on Wednesday night. Volquez was tagged for six runs on seven hits and two walks in 3 2/3 innings. He has now given up 21 runs in 13 2/3 innings over his last four outings.

"I used to go deep in the game and now in the last three starts it's kind of short. I'm going to fix it," Volquez said.

The Braves threatened in the second but failed to score after Uggla walked and Juan Francisco doubled to begin the inning. Brian McCann hit a ground ball to first and Yonder Alonso threw Uggla out at the plate. Paul Janish then popped out to third and Maholm struck out swinging.

Forsythe and Uggla traded two-out blasts in the third, with the latter coming after Atlanta had put two men in scoring position again.

Prado stroked a one-out single and Heyward doubled to left field before Volquez snared a a chopper off the bat of Freddie Freeman. Prado remained in a rundown between third and home long enough to allow Freeman to reach second. Uggla followed with a line-drive smash to the seats in left field.

Heyward's double highlighted a three-run fourth that included an RBI groundout by Michael Bourn.

Game Notes

Maholm picked up his first win in six lifetime starts versus the Padres ... Uggla and Heyward both walked twice ... The Padres have dropped three of four ... San Diego left fielder Carlos Quentin went 2-for-2 with a walk. He was also hit by a pitch.
