Kouzmanoff Ties Futile Franchise Record

By  | 

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Rookie Tommy Hanson shut down San Diego long
enough for his teammates to get a comfortable lead against Chad Gaudin and the Atlanta Braves beat the Padres 6-2 on Wednesday.

Atlanta's 14 hits were all singles. Nate McLouth and Chipper Jones had three apiece, and each Braves regular had at least one hit. The Braves won two of three and are probably sad to leave Petco Park. They tied their season high with 17 hits in a 9-2 win on Tuesday night.

San Diego's Kevin Kouzmanoff tied a team record by hitting into three double plays. Atlanta turned four overall.

Hanson (6-2) held San Diego to two hits trough five scoreless innings before faltering in his last inning, the sixth.
