ATLANTA — 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.
