Braves Snap Six Game Losing Streak With Win Over Padres
SAN DIEGO (AP) – Ender Inciarte finished a home run shy of the cycle and scored twice, Julio Teheran pitched eight innings and had an RBI single, and the Atlanta Braves beat the San Diego Padres 4-2 Wednesday to stop a six-game losing streak.
The Braves, who have the worst record in the majors at 17-42, denied the Padres what would have been their first series sweep this season.
Wil Myers homered twice for the Padres, last in the NL West at 25-36.
Batting leadoff, Inciarte singled and scored in the first, doubled in the second, struck out in the fourth and tripled and scored in the sixth.
Teheran (2-6) allowed two runs and five hits, struck out eight and walked one. Arodys Vizcaino, who took the loss Tuesday night, pitched the ninth for his seventh save in nine chances.
