Williams Perez couldn't put an end to the Braves' Petco problems as they lose their 11th straight in San Diego by a score of 7-2.

The Braves jumped on Christian Friedrich in the first inning with an RBI groundout by Jeff Francoeur, but then San Diego answered with a run in the bottom half on Matt Kemp's sacrifice fly.

Two innings later, Perez ran into two-out trouble. An infield hit by Wil Myers with nobody on led to Yangervis Solarte's towering three-run homer to break the tie. Matt Kemp padded the lead with a double in the fifth, scoring Myers, and later scored on a fielder's choice.

Chase d'Arnaud had himself a memorable game for the Braves with three hits, including his first RBI of the year on a seventh-inning single. Conversely, Freddie Freeman had a forgettable game with three strikeouts.

Jim Johnson allowed a run on two hits in the eighth.

Perez departed with one out in the fifth due to right triceps soreness; he allowed six runs in 4.1 innings. Friedrich pitched 6.2 innings for San Diego, striking out seven.
