ATLANTA (AP) - Burch Smith struck out 10 in seven innings to earn his first major league victory, Chase Headley and Tommy Medica homered, and the San Diego Padres beat the Atlanta Braves 4-0 on Sunday.

Smith (1-1) held the NL East-leading Braves hitless until pitcher Julio Teheran singled with one out in the sixth. Teheran advanced to third on Justin Upton's two-out single, but Smith struck out Evan Gattis to end the threat.

Smith allowed three hits and walked two. The rookie made his fifth career start - he had a 12.41 ERA in his previous starts. He struck out seven of the first 13 Atlanta batters.

Teheran (12-8) gave up seven hits, four runs, no walks and struck out six in 6 2-3 innings.
