Six-run inning carries Padres past Braves

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - San Diego stunned Atlanta with a six-run sixth
inning, and Kevin Kouzmanoff finished off the Braves with a two-run
homer that sent the Padres to a 12-5 rout Wednesday night.

The last-place Padres won their second straight over the Braves,
whose playoff hopes have taken a big blow during two sparsely
attended games at Turner Field. On Thursday, San Diego will go for
its first series sweep since taking three games from the Chicago
Cubs on May 22-24.

Tim Stauffer (2-6) earned the win. Kenshin Kawakami (6-10) took
the loss.
