Derek Norris tied the game with a home run leading off the ninth and Wil Myers singled in the winning run to give the San Diego Padres a 4-3 victory against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.
Norris hit the second pitch from Arodys Vizcaino (1-1) over the fence in left-center, his seventh. Alexei Ramirez singled, stole second and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Pinch-hitter Travis Jankowski walked and Jon Jay lined out to short before Myers lined a single down the left-field line.
Matt Thornton (1-0) pitched a perfect ninth for the win.
The Braves, who lost their sixth straight, have the worst record in the majors, 16-42. The Padres are last in the NL West at 25-35.
