ATLANTA — Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run single in the 11th inning, and the San Diego Padres beat the Atlanta Braves 6-4 Thursday following a benches-clearing incident and the ejection of Manager Bud Black.

Players left their dugouts in the first inning after Julio Teheran hit Matt Kemp with a 90 mph fastball. No punches were thrown and no one was ejected.

Black was tossed in the seventh for arguing with umpires Jordan Baker and Jerry Meals.

Craig Kimbrel, facing his former team for the second time in the series, earned his 15th save in 16 chances with a perfect 11th that included Andrelton Simmons’ groundout and a strikeouts by Christian Bethancourt.

Atlanta’s struggling bullpen, which began the day with a major league-worst 4.75 ERA, combined with Bethancourt to blow a 4-1 lead during San Diego’s three-run eighth.

BREWERS 6, NATIONALS 5: Scooter Gennett drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out single in the bottom of the eighth, capping host Milwaukee’s rally from a four-run deficit.

Gennett’s bouncer trickled just inside third base and into left to drive in Shane Peterson.

MARLINS 6, ROCKIES 0: Giancarlo Stanton drove in four runs with his 22nd homer and a 40-foot single, and host Miami broke a three-game losing streak.

METS 5, GIANTS 4: Michael Cuddyer singled home the winning run in the bottom of the ninth, and the Mets avoided a three-game sweep in New York.

CUBS 6, REDS 3: Miguel Montero and Dexter Fowler each homered, and host Chicago ended a four-game winning streak for banged up Cincinnati.


ANGELS 6, RAYS 2: Albert Pujols hit his 537th home run to move ahead of Mickey Mantle into 16th place on the all-time list and complete the scoring for Los Angeles in a win at St. Petersburg, Florida.

Pujols’ 17th home run of the season, which came in the ninth off Preston Guilmet, was his 1,122nd extra-base hit, tying Manny Ramirez for 14th place in that category. Pujols has 1,685 RBI, one short of Ernie Banks, who is 29th on the all-time list.

Mike Trout drove in two runs with his 17th home run and a double.

ATHLETICS 7, RANGERS 0: Scott Kazmir allowed one hit in eight innings to end a nine-start winless streak and lead Oakland past visiting Texas.

Kazmir (3-4) retired 13 of his first 14 batters around a second-inning walk by Adam Rosales and didn’t allow a hit until Elvis Andrus’ one-out single to center in the fifth.

INDIANS 6, MARINERS 0: Giovanny Urshela hit his first major league home run, Shaun Marcum and his bullpen combined on a two-hitter and Cleveland won at home.
