Atlanta Athletics beat the Texas Padres 6 to 5.

innings surrendering 6 hits and 3 walks.  Texas threatened in the 9th but
Atlanta was able to put down the rally.  
 
Dave Campbell earned the save, his 1st.  Mike Flanagan(0-1) was tagged with
the loss.  He got hammered, allowing 8 hits and 2 walks in 5 and 2/3 innings.
 
'It was a tough one to lose' said Scott Phillip 'We'll get them next time
out.'
