MLB: Atlanta Braves at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves started game two against the Padres putting Bartolo Colón out on the mound, his first start since June 5th when he gave up 8 runs to the Phillies, he lasted just three innings. The Friars put out Luis Perdomo, coming off a 6-inning 2-hit shutout against the Tigers on June 23rd.

Perdomo fared a little better than Colón for this start, though Luis’ start would eventually get sloppy. He went 5 innings shutting down the Braves until a flurry of singles racked up 4 runs in an inning. Perdomo would exit the game completing 5.1 innings allowing 7 hits and 4 earned runs while striking out 4.

The Friars lineup dolled the damage across the game, totaling 7 runs. The scoring started in the first with a Cory Spangenberg two-run RBI double, which scored the returning Manuel Margot and Hunter Renfroe. Renfroe would go on to smack his first career triple in the 4th, scoring Margot and Wil Myers.

Myers, Carlos Asuaje, and Allen Cordoba would all record RBI’s tonight. Out of the 12 hits, the Padres collected tonight three Friars would have multi-hit nights. Margot went 2-for-4 with a walk, Aybar 3-for-4, and Asuaje 3-for-4.

The Pads are finished with the Braves tomorrow. Dinelson Lamet gets the start.
