ATLANTA -- Another new road venue didnt affect Jesse Hahn. Jason Pominville Wild Jersey . That is exactly what San Diego manager Bud Black has come to expect from the rookie right-hander with the cool disposition. Hahn allowed only three hits in six innings, to remain unbeaten on the road, and the Padres beat Atlanta 5-2 on Friday night to extend their recent success against the Braves. Hahn (6-2) allowed one run as he improved to 4-0 in four road starts. "It tells me a little bit about the heartbeat," Black said of Hahn. "This guy is pretty calm for a young player. Hes got some confidence in his game, which we came to know in spring training. "I like the fact again hes got a pretty even keel about his personality during the course of the game." Hahn was in control despite having only four strikeouts, his low total in eight starts. He had no quick answer for his road success. "I dont know what the difference is," Hahn said. "I approach every game the same. I didnt even know I was pitching better on the road." The Padres continued their recent offensive recovery with 13 hits to beat Alex Wood (7-8). They have had 27 hits in their last two games, their best two-game total of the season, and have scored 26 runs in their last three games. "We do think we have the capability to produce more offensively," Black said. "Its taken a while to get there, and were still not anywhere near where we need to be." The Padres still rank last in the majors with their .218 batting average and 317 runs. Tommy Medica drove in a run and had a career-high four hits. Chris Denorfia had three hits and an RBI for San Diego. The Padres, who were 5-1 against the Braves in 2013, have won five of their last six series against Atlanta since early in 2011. The Braves fell 2 1-2 games behind first-place Washington in the NL East. Wood allowed five runs, four earned. He gave up a career-high 12 hits, including three infield singles, in five innings. Other hits found holes through the infield defence. "Ive never seen so many ground balls go through the infield," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "(Wood) kept getting ground balls, and they just kept getting through the infield." The Braves scored one run in the eighth but left the bases loaded. Kevin Quackenbush gave up a two-out single to Freddie Freeman before walking Justin Upton. Joaquin Benoit walked two batters, including a bases-loaded pass to Evan Gattis to force in a run. Chris Johnsons fly ball to shallow centre field ended the inning. Benoit had two strikeouts in a perfect ninth to earn his second save. San Diego led 5-0 before Freeman hit a one-out triple off the wall in centre field and scored on Uptons sacrifice fly in the sixth. Wood was helped by double plays in the first and second innings as he gave up eight hits but only two runs in the first three innings. The Padres doubled their lead with two runs in the fourth. Denorfia had a run-scoring single and scored on Yangervis Solartes fly ball for a 4-0 lead. Rene Rivera added a run-scoring single off Wood in the fifth. Black unsuccessfully challenged a call that Medica was forced out at second base in the fifth. Braves third baseman Chris Johnson bobbled Jeff Francoeurs grounder before throwing to Tommy La Stella at second. The call stood following a review that lasted 3 minutes, 1 second. Francoeur, who played with his hometown Braves from 2005-09, received an ovation before his first at-bat. He was 0 for 3 with a walk. NOTES: Braves RHP Anthony Vavaro was activated from paternity leave, and RHP Gus Schlosser was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett. ... Black said San Diego 1B Yonder Alonso (wrist) will be activated from the 15-day DL and is tentatively set to start on Saturday. OF Jake Goebbert will be optioned to Triple-A El Paso. ...

Costa injured his right thigh muscle against Barcelona last Saturday and had sought treatment in Belgrade from a doctor specializing in using fluid derived from horse placenta to repair damaged cells.With Major League Baseball’s winter GM Meetings having wrapped up last week, the leagues 30 general managers are in the midst of off-season renovations. TSN.ca looks at the day’s hottest rumours as free agent season gets off the ground. New suitor for Panda The San Diego Padres have emerged as the fifth known team interested in San Francisco Giants free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval. CBS Sports Jon Heyman reports that the Padres are keen on bringing the three-time World Series winner across the NL West after watching him up close for the last seven years. The Padres join the Giants, Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox as the teams known to be pursuing the 28-year-old Venezuelan. Sandoval is expected to meet with the Red Sox some time this week. San Diego has already been active this off-season. The team posted the accepted bid for 26-year-old South Korean lefty Kwang Hyun Kim. The team has until December 12 to reach an agreement with the player after having their bid, reported to be in the $2 million range, accepted by SK Wyverns of the Korea Baseball Organization. The Padres are also believed to be among the clubs tracking Cuban outfielder Yosmany Tomas. Boras not worried on Scherzer Baseball mega-agent Scott Boras says that hes not worried about a lack of a market for his client, Detroit Tigers free agent starter, Max Scherzer. Borass also countered early reports that the Tigers were no longer interested in retaining the services of the 2013 American League Cy Young Award winner. Darcy Kuemper Wild Jersey Authentic. “I’ve never heard anything from anyone to suggest they’re not,” Boras told MLB Network Radios Jim Bowden and Jim Duquette on Sunday. “You have to remember that over the past 3-4 years, when you go back and look at the Detroit Tigers, as good as they are with all the offensive weaponry and pitching they have, when Max Scherzer pitches, they win 70% of their games. In all other games, the Tigers play at about 54%. So Max Scherzer has a huge impact on the success of the Detroit Tigers.” The 30-year-old Scherzer is among those at the top end of this years free agent starters along with Jon Lester of the Oakland Athletics and Kansas City Royals right-hander James Shields. Boras believes that a suitor for Scherzer might not be one with an obvious need for a starter and would sign him in a two-step process that involved trading an incumbent member of its rotation. “Say you need bullpen or you need catching or you need offense, whatever your other weakness, Boras explained. You can trade one of your good pitchers for someone like that and also then add a number one, which then strengthens your team in two areas. Scherzer finished 2014 at 18-5 with a 3.15 ERA and 1.175 WHIP in 220.1 innings over 33 starts.
