Daily Friar 9.14.13 

The Padres pulled out a 4-3 victory yesterday over the Atlanta Braves despite an impressive debut by Braves pitcher David Hale. Hale pitched five scoreless innings while striking out nine Padres batters. The Braves got on the board first with a solo home run by Justin Upton and a two-run shot by Brian McCann, both in the fourth inning off Padres starter Ian Kennedy. That would be all the Braves score however as the Padres would come back, scoring two in the seventh and two in the eighth, including a game-tying solo home run by Chase Headley and a go-ahead RBI single by Logan Forsythe. To close out the game, Huston Street recorded his 30th save of the season, his third career 30-save season.

For today’s rubber match, southpaw Robbie Erlin takes the mound for the Padres to face the Braves and their right-hander Kris Medlen. Make sure to tune-in at 4:05 PT as the Padres look to take an early series win.
