After a lengthy rain delay, Game 2 of Wednesday’s doubleheader between the Atlanta Braves and San Diego Padres was suspended due to inclement weather. No word yet when it might be played.

Things couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start for Bryse Wilson who was in trouble from the outset. Trent Grisham led off the game with a double off the glove of Guillermo Heredia in center. Heredia had to go a long way to have a chance to make the play, but it was a play that needed to be made. Wilson then walked Fernando Tatis Jr. and Jake Cronenworth followed with a single to load the bases.

Eric Hosmer brought home the first run with a sacrifice fly to left. Tatis scored on a wild pitch as Wil Myers walked to put runners at the corners. Wilson then got Jurickson Profar to line out center for the second out and had a chance to escape the inning with with minimal damage. He worked the count to 2-2 against Ha-Seong Kim but left a pitch up and out over the plate that was roped into the gap in left center for a two-run double to increase the lead to 4-0. The Braves opted to intentionally walk catcher Victor Caratini and with his 34th pitch of the frame, Wilson got pitcher Reiss Knehr to fly out to end the inning.

Wilson found himself in trouble again in the second as he walked Grisham who then stole second. Tatis struck out for the first out of the inning but Cronenworth singled to center to score Grisham to make it 5-0.

The Braves would get back in the game in the second against Knehr who issued back-to-back walks to Ozzie Albies and Austin Riley to begin the inning. Stephen Vogt flew out for the first out before Guillermo Heredia followed with a double to left that scored Albies to make it 5-1. Orlando Arcia followed with a sacrifice fly to right to score Riley to cut the deficit to 5-2.

With Ehire Adrianza coming to the plate to pinch hit for Wilson, Jayce Tingler would go to his bullpen and call on left-hander Daniel Camarena. Undeterred, Adrianza doubled to left to score Heredia to make it 5-3. Joc Pederson followed with an opposite field single to make it 5-4.

It was a rough night for Wilson who allowed four hits, four walks and five runs in just two innings. He threw 60 pitches with just 35 going for strikes.

Josh Tomlin worked two perfect innings in relief of Wilson and then Jesse Chavez tossed a perfect fifth. The game entered into a long rain delay in the bottom half of the inning. After a lengthy delay, the game was finally suspended. It is still to be determined as to when the game will be resumed. Atlanta will be in San Diego in late September but would have to agree to finish the game there.
