Brewers 6, Padres 3

Associated Press  |  Last updated April 24, 2013
Yovani Gallardo pitched into the seventh inning and the Milwaukee Brewers rode an early offensive outburst to another win, beating the San Diego Padres 6-3 Tuesday night for their ninth straight win. Gallardo (2-1) allowed three runs and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings, with five walks and two strikeouts. Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run double in the Brewers' five-run second inning. Jim Henderson pitched the ninth for his fifth save in five chances. Padres starter Clayton Richard (0-2), who missed his last start due to the flu, allowed six runs on six hits in 1 2-3 innings. The Padres have lost five straight overall and seven straight at home, their longest skid since a seven-game losing streak Aug. 26-Sept. 5, 2010, at Petco Park. They have scored six runs in their five-game losing streak and are 5-15 on the season. The nine-game winning streak is Milwaukee's longest since it won 10 in a row Aug. 19-28, 2003. The Brewers started 2-8 this season. The Brewers broke it open in the second on a two-run single by Yuniesky Betancourt, a groundout by Segura and Lucroy's double after an intentional walk to Ryan Braun. Gallardo's victory was his second straight since he was arrested on drunken-driving charges April 16. He left in the seventh after issuing three straight walks, his last to Carlos Quentin to load the bases with two out. Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny came on and struck out Yonder Alonso on three pitches to end the threat. Quentin, playing in his first game since his eight-game suspension for his part in a brawl with the Dodgers and Zack Greinke April 11, drove in the Padres' first run with a single in San Diego's two-run first inning The Padres went up 2-1 in the bottom of the first on Quentin's RBI single and another by Alonso after Braun's infield grounder scored Jean Segura, who had tripled. Thad Weber pitched 4 1-3 scoreless innings in relief of Richard for the Padres. NOTES: Segura had three hits. ... Brewers RHP Kyle Lohse said he has a little soreness from dislocating his pinky finger on his left hand Monday night, but said he expects to make his next scheduled start which would be Sunday against the Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw. However, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said that Lohse's start could be pushed back to next Monday or Tuesday at home against the Pirates. ''We could bump him back a day or two days. We'll see how he does and how he grabs a bat and see what happens there.'' . Brewers rookie RHP Hiram Burgos, who won his major league debut April 20th against the Cubs, will take his spot in the regular rotation on Friday against the Dodgers Friday. ... Padres RHP Edison Volquez (0-3,8.84) will make his 11th start against the Brewers Wednesday night, against Milwaukee RHP Marco Estrada (2-0, 4.50).
