Braves to face Phils after wild 9th in beating Padres 4-3


Or land or sea is pinch hit double in the top of the sixth inning lifted the Atlanta Braves to a four to three win over the San Diego Padres Atlanta struck first with a solo home run from John Peterson eventually building a three nothing lead off Padres starter Joe Musgrove Musgrove departed with a no decision after five innings allowing just three runs on seven hits with nine strikeouts the bridge used eight pitchers in a bullpen game and held off San Diego as closer will Smith danced around three walks to strike out the side in the ninth that's one thing I learned going to Tommy John when you just sit on the bench you realize you can slow the game down and just make your pitches despite pension that's either gonna go one where those are going to go your way or his way you know we just got lucky tonight and went away with the win the Braves now lead the National League east by two and a half games over the Philadelphia Phillies Philip gone San Diego
