Ha-Seong Kim had an RBI double to start a four-run 11th inning rally, while helping the visiting San Diego Padres to a 7-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday to take two of three games in the series.

Kim's second double of the game drove in automatic runner Jake Cronenworth to start the 11th. After Eric Hosmer reached on a fielding error, Kim scored on Jurickson Profar's fielder's choice. Will Myers followed with a broken-bat two-run single to expand the lead to four runs.

San Diego's Nabil Crismatt (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings with four strikeouts to earn the win. Crismatt also had a key defensive play in the 10th when he threw out designated runner William Contreras at third to negate a sacrifice bunt.

Taylor Rogers worked a perfect 11th for the Padres and struck out two to close the game.

Atlanta's Jackson Stephens (0-1) gave up four runs (two earned) in two innings to take the loss.

The Padres improved to 2-2 in extra-inning games, while the Braves dropped to 0-2.

San Diego also finished off the season series against the Braves with a 4-3 advantage. It was the first time San Diego won the season series since 2015.

Dansby Swanson had a part in Atlanta's first three runs. He scored the first run in the second inning on Adam Duvall's RBI single and hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning, his fourth of the season.

San Diego got its first run in the fifth when the Braves' Matt Olson couldn't come up with a pickoff throw at first, allowing Profar to score from second base.

The Padres tied the game 3-3 in the seventh on an RBI single by Myers and Austin Nola's sacrifice fly to right.

San Diego starter Joe Musgrove pitched six innings and allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks, with six strikeouts. Atlanta's Kyle Wright worked 6 1/3 innings, giving up three runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks, with nine strikeouts.

Veteran Robinson Cano, signed Friday as a free agent, made his Padres debut, going 0-for-5 with a strikeout while starting at second base.
