Forsythe, Venable homer to lead Padres over Braves

June 11th, 2013 - By Steve James

 

SAN DIEGO (AP) – Logan Forsythe homered in his first

at-bat of the season, Will Venable added a three-run homer and

Jason Marquis won his seventh straight decision to lead the San

Diego Padres to a 7-6 victory against the Atlanta Braves on Monday

night.

Both homers came off rookie Julio Teheran (4-3).

Braves rookie Evan Gattis had a pinch-hit, three-run

homer with one out in the ninth off Tim Stauffer to pull the Braves

to 7-5.

Jason Heyward homered to straightaway center field

with two outs in the ninth, his second solo shot of the game and

fifth of the season. It came off Dale Thayer, who got the final two

outs for his first save in three chances.

Marquis (8-2) held Atlanta to two runs and five hits,

walked five and struck out four.
