ATLANTA (AP) — Chase Headley hit a tying homer and Logan Forsythe drove in the go-ahead run in San Diego’s two-run eighth and the Padres beat Atlanta 4-3 on Friday night to spoil Braves rookie David Hale’s debut.

Hale pitched five scoreless innings and struck out nine, the most by a Braves pitcher in his first major league game.

Justin Upton and Brian McCann hit home runs off Ian Kennedy in the third inning to give the Braves a 3-0 lead.

The Padres scored two runs in the seventh and tied the game on Headley’s leadoff homer off Jordan Walden (4-3) in the eighth.

Walden walked Tommy Medica, who moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on Forsythe’s pinch-hit single to center field off Scott Downs.

Nick Vincent (5-3) had three strikeouts in the seventh. Luke Gregerson pitched a perfect eighth before Huston Street got the final three outs for his 30th save.
