ATLANTA — San Diego stunned Atlanta with a six-run sixth inning, and Kevin Kouzmanoff finished off the Braves with a two-run homer that sent the Padres to a 12-5 rout Wednesday.

The last-place Padres won their second straight over the Braves, whose playoff hopes have taken a big blow during two sparsely attended games at Turner Field.

Today, San Diego will go for its first series sweep since taking three games from the Chicago Cubs on May 22-24.

The Padres sent 11 batters to the plate in the sixth and scored more runs that inning than their last three games combined.
