Right-hander Aaron Harang's bid to become the first Padres starter ever to go 5-0 in April was crushed Tuesday night as Atlanta hit three homers and scored eight runs in six innings off Harang. The Padres ended up losing 8-2.

Former Cincinnati battery-mate David Ross hit two of the homers, including a three-run shot to cap a five-run sixth. Chipper Jones gave the Braves the quick lead with a two-run homer in the first.

Harang fell to 4-1 as his ERA more than doubled from 1.88 to 3.90.

Harang gave up eight runs on seven hits and three walks in six innings. All three of the walks scored.

"It didn't seem like I could locate anything tonight," said Harang. "You've got to look at it as one of those games. You're just not going to have it every once in a while. They're an aggressive, fastball-hitting team and when you can't locate your pitches, obviously it showed what can happen."

The eight runs scored by the Braves matched the most allowed by the Padres in a game this season. San Francisco defeated the Padres 8-4 back on April 6 -- triggering the Padres' 6-14 slide over their last 20 games.
