Volquez bounces back from bad start to beat Braves

June 13th, 2013 - By Steve James

Edinson Volquez struck out a

season-high nine in seven innings as he rebounded from the worst

start of his career and led the San Diego Padres to a 5-3 victory

over the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves on Wednesday and a

three-game sweep.

Chris Denorfia hit a two-run homer for the Padres,

who have won six of eight. They swept the Braves in San Diego for

the first time since May 19-21, 2005. The Braves, who’ve lost five

of seven, were swept for just the second time this season. The

first was at Detroit April 26-28.

Denorfia homered to left field with one out in the

fifth off Paul Maholm, his third. Everth Cabrera was on second

after hitting a single and stealing his 30th base, tops in the

majors.
