Braves 10, Padres 6

on .

Andruw Jones homered twice to break out of a drought as the Braves took 2 of 3 from San Diego. The Braves jumped on the board in the first inning with an Edgar Renteria solo homer to the opposite field into the Petco Boxes, then Andruw hit a 2 run homer to make it 3-0. Andruw hit his 2nd homer 2 innings later, a 2 run shot to center to make it 5-1. The Braves withstood minor rallies by the Padres to win. Thomson (2-3, 3.04) went 7.1 innings, allowing 6 runs (4 earned) on 8 hits, a walk, and struck out 3. Oscar Villarreal finished the 8th, giving up an unearned inherited run. The Good Chris Reitsma pitched a scoreless 9th and struck out 2. Offensive contributors: Chipper Jones was 4-5 (all singles) and scored 3 times. Andruw Jones was 2-3, hit his 10th and 11th homers, walked twice, scored 3 runs, and had 4 RBIs. Todd Pratt was 2-5 with 2 RBIs. Matt Diaz was 2-5 and scored. Marcus Giles was 1-4, walked twice, and scored. Adam LaRoche was 1-4, had 3 RBIs, and scored. Edgar Renteria was 1-4 with his 3rd homer and walked. The Mets beat the Phillies. The Braves and Phillies are tied for 2nd, 5 games back. The Braves have an off-day tomorrow (or later today), and now go to Chicago to play the Cubs who just were swept by the Marlins, which is scary. Tim Hudson will go against Carlos Zambrano Friday afternoon.
