The Atlanta Braves would lose to the San Diego Padres 1-0 and have their win streak snapped at eight games. The Braves would also not complete the series sweep but would win the series 2-1.
Nick Martinez now has a record of 1-1 for the Padres after pitching seven innings and only allowing three hits while also hitting two strikeouts.
Josh Hader would get the save for the Padres allowing no hits in his one inning of pitching which was his fifth save of the season.
The Braves would only have four hits as a team with Ronald Acuna Jr and Kevin Pillar each having one hit while Sam Hillard would hit two.
Charlie Morton holds a record of 2-2 after today’s loss in which he threw six innings allowing five hits and one run. Morton would also strike out five batters.
The lone run of the game would go to Juan Soto who would hit his fourth home run of the season in the bottom of the fourth.
The Braves would get close to scoring in the top of the third as after a Pillar and Hillard single and a Acuña Jr walk Matt Olson would hit a pop up and Austin Riley would strikeout which was the closest the Braves would get having a runner 90 feet away from scoring.
The Padres now will regain Tatis on Thursday in Arizona as they hold a record of 9-11 which puts them at third in the National League.
The Braves meanwhile fall back down to earth with that loss that brings them to 14-5 which is tied for the best record in the National League with the Milwaukee Brewers. Both teams are also tied for the second best record in Major League Baseball behind the Tampa Bay Rays.
Atlanta will get Thursday off as they travel back home to take on the Houston Astros in a three game weekend home series.
