Kris Medlen extended his scoreless streak to 28 1-3 innings by holding San Diego to five singles over eight innings and leading the Atlanta Braves to a 2-0 victory Tuesday night.

Medlen allowed only five baserunners and erased two of them on pickoffs at first base. He struck out nine to tie his career high and walked none.

Atlanta, the NL wild-card leader, ended the Padres’ season-high eight-game winning streak.

Medlen (6-1) has not allowed a run since the second inning of a 9-3 victory against the New York Mets on Aug. 11. Five days after that, he threw his first complete game and shutout in a 6-0 victory against San Diego at Atlanta, allowing only five hits.

Atlanta has won Medlen’s last 17 starts dating to May 2010 and is 20-4 in his 24 career starts.
