SAN DIEGO —Kris Medlen has more than proved he belongs in the Atlanta Braves
rotation. Roger Craig Jersey . Medlen extended his
scoreless streak to 28 1-3 innings by holding San Diego to five singles over
eight innings and leading the Atlanta Braves to a 2-0 victory Tuesday night.
Medlen, who moved into the rotation on July 31, allowed only five baserunners
and erased two of them on pickoffs at first base. He struck out nine to tie his
career high and walked none. “Hes terrific,” manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “He
does everything you want a starting pitcher to do and hopefully theres young
players out there watching what he does. He gets the ball back and fires it. He
throws strikes. He holds runners, he fields his position. He does a lot of
stuff. He pitches like hes in the backyard. Hes having fun and he goes after
hitters and nothing fazes him. Were glad we have him in the rotation.” Atlanta,
the NL wild-card leader, ended the Padres season-high eight-game winning streak.
Medlen (6-1) has not allowed a run since the second inning of a 9-3 victory
against the New York Mets on Aug. 11. Five days after that, he threw his first
complete game and shutout in a 6-0 victory against San Diego at Atlanta,
allowing only five hits. “It doesnt matter to me,” said Medlen, whos from a Los
Angeles suburb and pitched in front of about 25 friends and family members.
“Were winning games and thats all that really matters. When you start worrying
about stuff like that, thats when you start getting off your plan and off focus.
I just want to stay focused and take it a start at a time, and whatever else
cliche I can say.” Atlanta has won Medlens last 17 starts dating to May 2010 and
is 20-4 in his 24 career starts. Medlen picked off Everth Cabrera in the second
inning and Alexi Amarista in the sixth. Gonzalez said it had been a while since
hed seen a right-hander pick off two runners. Medlen said he made the adjustment
after giving up some stolen bases in his last start after not even looking at
runners. “He works down in the zone, big time,” San Diegos Yonder Alonso said.
“He may have left up two or three pitches. Bottom line, we didnt get the big
hits. He made it tough for us. It was very, very difficult.” Medlen “got us over
there and he repeated it over here,” Padres manager Bud Black said, referring to
the victories against the Padres in both Atlanta and San Diego. Craig Kimbrel
pitched the ninth for his 32nd save in 34 chances. Dan Uggla homered leading off
the fifth, his 1,000th career hit, and Chipper Jones hit an RBI double in the
first, both off Andrew Werner, who was making his second big league start.
Werner (1-1) allowed two runs and four hits in six innings, struck out seven and
walked none. “The first inning I was up a bit,” Werner said. “But then I settled
down. The rest of the game went pretty smoothly except for that one pitch I left
out there” on Ugglas homer. NOTES: A group that includes the sons and nephews of
former Dodgers owner Peter OMalley has closed its $800 million deal to buy the
San Diego Padres. The team scheduled a news conference for Wednesday morning to
introduce the new owners. The sale was approved by major league owners on Aug.
16. The new ownership group includes OMalleys sons, Kevin and Brian OMalley, and
nephews Peter and Tom Seidler. Golfer Phil Mickelson, a San Diegan, also is
involved with the group. He wont be at the news conference, though, as hes en
route to the Deutsche Bank Championship outside of Boston. ... The series
