ATLANTA ? The Atlanta Braves are glad that their four-game series with the San Diego Padres beginning Thursday night is at home rather than in San Diego.

The Braves swept four games from the Padres in the opening series for new SunTrust Park in April 2017 and have almost nothing but success against the team in Atlanta.

It has been exactly the opposite in San Diego http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-durham-smythe-jersey , though.

The Padres took two of three from Atlanta in San Diego last week, and the Braves have dropped 16 of their last 19 games in the Padres? home stadium while being outscored 98-59 over the stretch of futility.

The Braves have lost eight straight series at San Diego dating to 2011, but own an all-time record of 186-122 against the Padres in Atlanta.

The Braves (39-28) went 2-4 on their road trip against the Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers, but returned home to sweep a two-game series from the New York Mets and regain sole possession of first place in the National League East.

The Padres (33-37) have won five straight series after taking two of three at St. Louis and own 11 wins in their past 15 games.

Anibal Sanchez (2-0, 2.37 ERA) will start the series opener for the Braves, with fellow right-hander Tyson Ross (5-3, 3.43) going for San Diego.

Sanchez has made three starts since spending six weeks on the disabled list because of a hamstring strain and is 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA in the past two, allowing just five hits in 12 1/3 innings.

Atlanta has won Sanchez?s last four starts, with the 34-year-old getting a no-decision in his best outing since signing a minor league contract in spring training after being released by Minnesota.

In that game, Sanchez worked seven innings against Washington on June 3 and allowed just two hits and two unearned runs while walking one and striking out five.

?He?s got a great feel for pitching and knows what he?s doing http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dorance-armstrong-jr.-jersey ,? Braves manager Brian Snitker said. ?I think his stuff is better than what I was led to believe when we signed him. He?s sneaky. He knows what he?s doing. He can change speeds and he locates the fastball well.?

Sanchez has made five career starts against San Diego, losing his only two decisions but posting a 2.76 ERA.

The Padres have won the last six games started by Ross and are 10-3 in his outings this season.

?When it?s your turn to take the ball, you have to believe that you?re the ace,? Ross said. ?It?s a rotation of five, but when it?s your turn to go, you have to give the team a chance to win.?

Ross won a combined 23 games for San Diego in 2014 and 2015, and was the Padres? Opening Day starter in 2016. That was his only outing of the season, though, as thoracic outlet surgery forced him to miss the rest of the year as well as the first part of 2017 after he signed as a free agent with Texas.

The 31-year-old California native made 10 starts and two relief appearances for the Rangers last year, going 3-3 with a 7.71 ERA.

Ross has faced the Braves four times http://www.redskinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-da_ron-payne-jersey , with one appearance in relief, and is 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA.

Stephen Curry backpedaled in pure joy. He skipped, hollered and let the ball fly from everywhere with that feeling he gets when there?s no way it will miss ? unwavering even with a defender?s hand in his face.

Curry dazzled in outdueling LeBron James as the two superstars traded big shots and celebratory moves, hitting an NBA Finals-record nine 3-pointers and scoring 33 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 122-103 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night for 2-0 lead.

?Pretty special night,? Curry said, ?and hopefully some more special things happen and we get two more wins.?

Kevin Durant found his steady stroke to score 26 points to go with nine rebounds and seven assists while also handling a load of the defensive assignment against James. Klay Thompson added 20 points playing on a tender left leg to put the defending champions two wins from a repeat title they have talked about since the season began last fall.

James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in a far tamer finals sequel ? and a much more lopsided one ? minus the utter craziness of a drama-packed opener three days prior.

Game 3 is Wednesday night in Cleveland.

?We want to continue to be uncomfortable,? James said. ?Just because we?re going home doesn?t mean we can relax.?

Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home.

Curry had the shot of the night with 7:54 to play, making an off-balance swish from several feet behind the 3-point arc over Love as the shot clock wound down Alex McGough Color Rush Jersey , then scooted backward in delight. Curry fell into the first row of fans with a baseline 3 again over Love and four-point play at the 5:44 mark of the fourth.

?He?s a big shot taker, big shot maker,? Draymond Green said. ?Tough shot taker, tough shot maker.?

The long shot over Love stood out to Curry?s Splash Brother, Thompson.

?About seven seconds on the clock he just kept going backward, I don?t know why, but he just threw it up and I didn?t think it had any chance of going in,? Thompson said. ?That was kind of like a dagger shot. It just gave us all the momentum back.?

The two-time MVP made 11 of 26 shots and was 9 for 17 from deep.

James pointed with both hands after his 3 with 11:04 remaining got his team within seven, before Curry answered from deep the next two trips down the floor.

?Those moments when you can come down and answer and keep the momentum on our side, it?s big http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jonathan-cooper-jersey ,? Curry said. ?Keep the crowd into it.?

Curry and James had a tense moment in the third, too.

James became irate at the officials for a no-call on Curry, who ran beneath the Cavs star and didn?t let him land with 3:54 remaining in the quarter as James caught Love?s long pass and went out of bounds. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was hit with a technical, saying afterward he didn?t say much but was on the court.

JaVale McGee scored 12 points, making all six of his shots in his first career NBA Finals start as Kerr made a lineup switch that proved spot on.

The typically efficient Durant connected on 10 of 14 shots after going just 8 for 22 ? 1 of 7 on 3s ? in the opener but still scoring 26 points.

Last year?s NBA Finals MVP made his initial five field goals Sunday, driving right at James on offense and doing all he could to fluster him on defense.

James hit a 3 over Durant?s outstretched arm midway through the third, then Tristan Thompson?s basket the next possession pulled the Cavs within 72-66. But they couldn?t contain Curry and the rest of the Warriors for extended stretches.

The Warriors vowed to make it harder for James to generate good looks after he shot 19 for 32 in the series opener, and James went 12:06 of game time between made baskets.

James went 10 for 20, showing few signs his shot was altered by a bloodshot left eye. He had been taking antibiotics and using drops after being poked in the eye by Green in the first half Thursday.

The Warriors earned a wacky 124-114 overtime win in Game 1 Thursday night ? featuring J.R. Smith?s blunder when he grabbed an offensive rebound in the waning moments of regulation and dribbled back toward halfcourt rather than shooting for the victory, and an overturned charge call against James.

Smith received rousing cheers from the home fans during pregame introductions and ?M-V-P!? chants greeted him when he went to the foul line.

Thompson played after bruising his lower left leg when Smith slid into him in the first quarter Thursday. The Warriors All-Star has never missed a postseason game.

Kerr went with 7-foot big man McGee to start in place of Kevon Looney ? McGee?s 10th career start in the postseason.

McGee scored the first four points as Golden State made its initial seven shots and 10 of 11.

Another key role player Brian O'Neill Color Rush Jersey , Shaun Livingston, made his five field-goal tries for 10 points to give Golden State a lift in the first half after making all four of his shots Thursday.

?They?re a dangerous ballclub no matter what,? James said. ?It starts with those four guys, those four All-Stars. Everybody else just does their job and they don?t miss a beat when they put someone in or they take someone out.?

TIP-INS

Cavaliers: James? first-half line: 15 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, two steals. His first points ? the first for Cleveland ? came on a goaltend by McGee. ? .
