Kemp threw his bat down in frustration and the benches cleared while Kemp was on his way to first base, having words with Teheran. Kemp, who slipped on the wet grass while being restrained by home-plate umpire Jordan Baker, stole second base and scored the game's first run on a Derek Norris single.
The incident was the latest instance of frustrations boiling over during this four-game series.
San Diego starter Tyson Ross threw behind Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons in Wednesday's 4-1 Atlanta win, a night after Simmons slid hard into Norris on Tuesday night, when Atlanta won, 6-5.
"Nobody likes to get hit," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said after the game. "We weren't hitting him intentionally -- I can promise you that -- in a 1-2 count. Same thing a couple nights ago with Justin in a 1-1 count with Perez. But that's all I've got on that. ... Just two teams that get up early after a game last night a little cranky."
