With Ryan Braun leading the way, the Milwaukee Brewers find themselves on the verge of their longest winning streak in 10 seasons. Victories, in contrast, haven't been easy to come by for the San Diego Padres - especially at home. Milwaukee aims for a ninth consecutive win when it continues a three-game set against the slumping Padres on Tuesday night at Petco Park. After opening 2-8, the Brewers (10-8) have picked up the pace in a big way over the last week-plus. After sweeping a six-game homestand, Milwaukee kicked off a six-game road trip with Monday's 7-1 series-opening victory. Braun went deep for the fourth time in five days and drove in three runs for the Brewers, who have outscored opponents 46-24 during their eight-game winning streak.
