Braves Rally to Beat San Diego 10-8 in Extra Innings

SAN DIEGO (AP) – Jorge Soler hit a go-ahead double with one out in the 10th inning for his fourth RBI, and the Atlanta Braves won 10-8 to keep their 1 1/2-game lead in the NL East while eliminating the San Diego Padres from playoff contention. The Padres were one out from a win in regulation when Eddie Rosario hit a tying single off major league saves leader Mark Melancon, who was trying for his 39th. Soler, who hit a three-run homer in the sixth, then helped seal the biggest collapse in Padres history with his hit off Daniel Hudson. Ozzie Albies added a sacrifice fly.
