Glaus homers in Braves' 6-1 win over Padres

April 15th, 2010 by Associated Press in Sports

SAN DIEGO - Tommy Hanson struck out seven in six solid innings and Troy Glaus hit a three-run homer to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 6-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night.

Hanson (1-1) held the Padres to one run on four hits, though he walked four and hit a batter as the Braves won for just the second time in six games.

Glaus homered off Sean Gallagher in the seventh inning to increase Atlanta's lead to 6-1.

It was Glaus' first home run since Sept. 28, 2008 with St. Louis. He appeared in 14 games last season with the Cardinals because of right shoulder surgery.

Clayton Richard (0-2) was cruising through five shutout innings before McCann put Atlanta ahead 2-1 with a two-run double with one out.
