 SAN DIEGO (AP) -David Wells was ejected in the fourth inning for arguing balls and strikes, and Atlanta's Jo-Jo Reyes didn't last much longer in his big league debut.
The San Diego Padres beat the Braves 8-5 Saturday behind home runs by Mike Cameron and Khalil Greene and some nice contributions from new left fielder Milton Bradley.
The NL West-leading Padres snapped a four-game losing streak to the Braves.
Andruw Jones hit a two-run triple into the right-center field gap off Heath Bell (3-2) to tie it at 5 with two outs in the seventh.
But San Diego rallied with three runs in the seventh. After Tyler Yates (2-1) loaded the bases on a double and two walks with one out, Greene drove in the go-ahead run with a grounder. Second baseman Yunel Escobar was charged with an error for his off-line throw to shortstop Edgar Renteria, which allowed Bradley to slide in safely.
Kevin Kouzmanoff hit a two-run single to left one pitch after fouling a ball off his left foot. He drove in three runs overall.
But it was ``Boomer'' Wells who provided a good deal of the excitement. He was tossed for arguing with home plate umpire Ed Hickox after allowing Jeff Francoeur's two-run homer in the fourth.
The 44-year-old Wells allowed three runs and four hits in three innings, struck out one and walked one.
Reyes, starting in place of injured All-Star John Smoltz, allowed five runs and five hits in three innings with three walks.
Bradley made his first appearance eight days after being obtained in a trade with Oakland. Activated from the disabled list before the game, Bradley beat out an infield single, walked, scored two runs and made a nice play in left field.
