MLB: San Diego Padres at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves extended their winning streak to three-straight games on Thursday with a 4-2 win over the San Diego Padres.

Ozzie Albies put Atlanta up 1-0 in the 3rd with a hit back through the box that he turned into a double thanks to some heads up base running.

Ender Inciarte extended the lead in the fifth when he jumped on an inside cutter from Tyson Ross and drove it into the Chop House for a solo home run. Inciarte went 2-for-3 in the game, scored twice and drove in two runs.

The Braves are playing so good now that even their ball boys are getting in on the action.

Freddie Freeman had a quiet night for the most part but did extend his hitting streak to eight-straight games with an eighth inning double.

Anibal Sanchez was the story tonight allowing just four hits over seven shutout innings. He struck out six and walked no one while lowering his ERA to a crisp 1.93 for the season.
