Recap


Padres 3, Braves 0:
Casey Kelly pitched six scoreless innings in his major league debut and Yasmani Grandal drove in all three runs as host San Diego won its season-best eighth straight contest.

Kelly (1-0) was one of the key components in the deal in which the Padres traded All-Star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez to the Boston Red Sox following the 2010 season. He allowed three hits and two walks while striking out four.

Carlos Quentin began the San Diego second inning with a walk and Grandal followed with a two-run line shot into the left-field bleachers off Atlanta starter Paul Maholm (11-9). Grandal added a run-scoring single in the eighth.

Tommy Layne pitched a perfect seventh, Dale Thayer worked a hitless eighth and Luke Gregerson induced Chipper Jones to hit into game-ending double play for his second save in two days after not having any prior to Sunday.

Logan Forsythe and Jesus Guzman joined Grandal in recording two hits for San Diego, which is 16-9 in August and 41-30 since June 9.

Maholm allowed two runs and eight hits in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out five and walked one.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Jones (oblique) was back in the starting lineup and was honored before the game as part of his final visit to San Diego. Jones was given a personalized surfboard by the Padres. … Kelly is the 15th pitcher to start for San Diego this season, matching the club record. … Kelly’s father, Pat, was in attendance for his debut. Pat Kelly was a Triple-A manager for the Braves from 2003-05 and currently is a Rookie League manager for Billings in the Cincinnati Reds’ organization. … Padres C Nick Hundley will undergo season-ending knee surgery to repair a meniscus tear.
