SAN DIEGO (AP) -- 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.
