LEADING OFF: Braves open new park, Moreland near double mark

LEADING OFF: Braves open new park, Moreland near double mark

The Braves beat the Padres 5-2.

The stadium has earned positive reviews from Braves players.

On the night the Braves christened their new stadium, Atlanta's lead-off man assured that he'll be the answer to several future trivia questions.

Pregame ceremony: The Atlanta Braves will celebrate the opening of SunTrust Park by welcoming home Braves legends Hank Aaron, Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Dale Murphy, Phil Niekro and John Smoltz as part of a pregame ceremony.

Julio Teheran picked up the win on the mound for the Braves.

A sellout crowd will be watching when the Braves finally play their first regular-season game in SunTrust Park against San Diego on Friday night. The Atlanta bullpen took over after that, securing the first win of the four-game series. Jim Johnson came on in the ninth for his second save.

Eric Thames slugs a pair of longballs in Brewers' victory
Reds manager Bryan Price said the club is likely to activate C Devin Mesoraco during the team's upcoming weekend series in St. Reds C Devin Mesoraco, on the 10-day DL after right hip surgery, is 18 days into a rehab assignment with Double-A Pensacola.

Ender Inciarte celebrates after hitting the first home run in SunTrust Park history.

It may be the latest installment in the history of Major League Baseball stadiums - the Texas Rangers have announced a new stadium plan - but there are concerns. Needing a cane for his walk to the field, Aaron steadied himself with one hand before flipping the ball underhanded to Cox.

He would later come around to score the first run on Nick Markakis two-run double. Ryan Schimpf walked and Erick Aybar was hit by a pitch, setting up Chacin's run-scoring dribbler and Manuel Margot's RBI single. In two starts, Teheran owns two quality starts and hasn't allowed a single run.

Renfroe deposited a 1-0 knuckler over the fence in left-center field for his third home run and Hedges hit his first of the season to left field on a 1-2 knuckleball.

During the conversation, McAuley marveled at how comfortable and familiar SunTrust Park already felt, even though the venue has only hosted one event, an exhibition game on March 31. The three-story Chop House bar was packed full of patrons, some holding beers that were aged with baseball bat wood.

Verlander (1-1) gave up 11 hits in four-plus innings, including home runs by Carlos Santana and Lonnie Chisenhall.

The second-place finisher in Beijing-Ukraine's Lyudmila Blonska-has also been disqualified for doping. Tatiana Chernova's 2008 sample tested positive for anabolic steroid turinabol.

The Braves are strongly encouraging fans to purchase pre-paid parking passes to games as they will help alleviate delays around the stadium.

"We will be talking about this probably a couple of times, those type of things", Braves manager Brian Snitker said.

Next up for the Braves are these same Padres, at 1:35 PM.

Braves: RHP R.A. Dickey (0-1) will have the distinction of pitching in three different Braves stadiums.

After only 20 years at Turner Field, built for the 1996 Olympics, the Braves moved north to Cobb County.
