ATLANTA — Matt Kemp drove in the go-ahead run with a loud double, former Bravesstar Craig Kimbrel earned his 200th career save and the San Diego Padres beat Atlanta 5-3 in 11 innings on Monday night.
The Padres forced extra innings by scoring one run off Braves closer Jason Grilli in the ninth.
Justin Upton, facing Atlanta for the first time since his offseason trade from the Braves, led off the 11th with a walk from Cody Martin (2-3).
Upton stole second and easily scored when Kemp doubled off the left-field wall. Kemp scored on Alexi Amarista's double.
Kimbrel made a triumphant return to Atlanta after being traded to the Padres in early April, recording the final three outs. He reached the milestone in his 318th game — faster than any pitcher in major league history. Jonathan Papelbon recorded his 200th save in his 359th game for the previous fastest pace
Kimbrel struck out Todd Cunningham to clinch his 14th save.
Brandon Maurer (3-0) retired the Braves in order in the 10th.
Grilli, hurt by his throwing error on a pickoff attempt, couldn't hold a 3-2 lead in the ninth. He blew his second save in 17 chances.
Yonder Alonso led off the ninth with a ground-rule double that bounced over the right-field wall before Grilli struck out Will Middlebrooks.
Atlanta fans booed as Melvin Upton Jr., who struggled in his two seasons with the Braves, entered the game as a pinch-runner for Alonso. He moved to third when Grilli's wild pickoff throw sailed into center field for an error. Upton, who came off the disabled list before the game after missing two months with a left foot injury, scored the tying run on Cory Spangenberg's sacrifice fly.
Cameron Maybin drove in a run with two hits against his former San Diego teammates.Braves starter Shelby Miller allowed only five hits and one run in seven innings as he lowered his ERA to 1.84.
Maybin, acquired by Atlanta as part of the trade that sent closer Kimbrel to the Padres, kept hitting well. He had a run-scoring single in Atlanta's three-run third inning and added another single in the fifth. Since May 15 he has raised his batting average from .216 to .299.
San Diego's Ian Kennedy allowed three runs on eight hits in five innings.
Justin Upton, who like Kimbrel had a warm greeting from Atlanta fans, was 0 for 4 with two strikeouts, a walk and a run-scoring groundout in the eighth.
