• SAN DIEGO 5, ATLANTA 3: Rookie Colin Rea won his second consecutive start and Will Venable hit a two-run single in the second inning for the host Padres. Rea got all the backing he needed when the Padres scored three runs on four hits off William Perez (4-4) in the second inning. Matt Kemp and Yonder Alonso homered later before Craig Kimbrel, obtained from the Braves the day before the season started, pitched a shaky ninth for his 34th save. He allowed one run on two hits and a walk.
