• Summary: The San Diego Padres beat the Braves 8-5 Saturday behind home runs by Mike Cameron and Khalil Greene and some nice contributions from new left fielder Milton Bradley.
• Did you see that? Padres starter David Wells was tossed for arguing with home plate umpire Ed Hickox after allowing Jeff Francoeur's two-run homer in the fourth. After he was thrown out, the big left-hander had to be restrained by manager Bud Black, two coaches and catcher Josh Bard. Wells fired a ball against the screen as he walked off the field.
• Back in action: Milton Bradley made his first appearance for the Padres eight days after being obtained in a trade with Oakland. Bradley beat out an infield single, walked, scored two runs and made a nice play in left field.
• Welcome to the show: Atlanta's Jo-Jo Reyes didn't last long in his big league debut Saturday. Reyes gave up five runs and five hits in three innings, struck out one and walked three.

Padres 8, Braves 5
Bradley and center fielder Cameron converged on Chipper Jones' fly ball in the third inning. The ball ticked off Cameron's glove and bounced off Bradley's right shoulder before the newcomer grabbed it with his bare hand, bobbled it twice and held on to end the inning.
