Friday night was not just about sports and a new home season for the Braves, it marked Cobb's emergence as a big-time sports venue and entertainment district.

2016 that they had partnered with Uber to provide longtime usher Walter Banks with free rides to and from SunTrust Park so he can continue greeting Braves fans. Stay tuned throughout the day for all the latest. I was just trying to help win the ballgame, but I got to do a lot of things for the first time. "A couple of bad pitches cost me, but overall I felt good". Bartolo Colon pitched brilliantly going seven strong while limiting the Padres to one run on a lone hit.

When Orr saw games at Turner Field, he said it reminded him of his childhood when he went with this parents.

"He was beatable tonight and we didn't take advantage of it", said Padres manager Andy Green, bemoaning how his team had chased too many pitches out of the strike zone.

Pirates starter Gerrit Cole (1-1) worked six innings in his third start and gave up just two runs on six hits while walking one and striking out five.

BOSTON - Chris Sale was dominant with 12 strikeouts over seven innings for his first victory with Boston, Mitch Moreland hit a solo homer and the Red Sox beat Tampa Bay. "The bullpen picked me up and we won the (Wednesday) game".

His first-ever game was a Reds-Cubs matchup in Chicago as a kid (he can't remember exactly what age) and boasts that he and his dad once saw four games in one day - two doubleheaders in Chicago, then up the road in Milwaukee. High on his list of newish places: PNC Park, home of the Pirates since their old digs, Three Rivers Stadium, was taken down in the name of progress. Atlanta may want to start their first year correctly.

Padres: RHP Kevin Quackenbush was optioned to Triple-A El Paso to clear a roster spot for Cahill.

Braves: Kemp (hamstring) ran before the game and isn't expected to need a rehab stint in the minors before he's eligible to return on Tuesday.

Trevor Cahill will be making the start for the Padres on Sunday. He was a member of Team USA in the 1996 Summer Olympics at Fulton County Stadium before pitching in the majors at Turner Field.
