ATLANTA (AP) -- Kelly Johnson hit a two-out, bases-clearing
double in the sixth inning to help the Atlanta Braves to a 5-to-3
victory over the San Diego Padres today.
The win ended a 10-game homestand for Atlanta, which won seven

The game was tied at 2 when Chris Woodward doubled over the head

staked to a 2-nothing lead by four straight hits in the first, the
last of them run-scoring singles by Andruw Jones and Jeff
