ATLANTA (AP) _ Pinch-hitter Greg Norton broke a seventh-inning
tie with a bases-loaded single and the Atlanta Braves beat the San
Diego Padres 5-2 on Wednesday night for their fifth straight win.
Tim Hudson (5-2) gave up six hits and two runs in seven innings.
He walked three and struck out three. Manny Acosta recorded the
final two outs for his third save.
Greg Norton came over to the Braves earlier this week after being traded from the Seattle Mariners.
