SAN DIEGO — With four pinch-hit home runs, Braves rookie Evan Gattis is just one shy of matching the franchise record set by Butch Nieman in 1945. "You think you see everything you are going to see in the game, then someone like him comes along and does what he's been doing." Jason Heyward said after the Braves rallied for four runs in the ninth inning before losing to the San Diego Padres, 7-6 on Monday night.
