National League Game Summary - San Diego at Milwaukee|
(Wednesday, April 23rd)
Final Score: Milwaukee 5, San Diego 2
Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Jean Segura's three-run homer in the
second inning powered the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-2 victory over the San
Diego Padres in the rubber match of a three-game set.
Khris Davis also homered while Ryan Braun supplied two hits and an RBI for the
Brewers, who have won five of their last six.
Kyle Lohse (4-1) won his fourth straight start, allowing only two runs -- one
earned -- on five hits with five strikeouts across seven innings. Francisco
Rodriguez struck out two in a scoreless ninth to earn his ninth save of the
Seth Smith and Nick Hundley each drove in a run for San Diego, which has
dropped three of its last four. Starter Tyson Ross (2-3) was reached for five
runs on nine hits over six innings in defeat.
"He just couldn't get ahead of hitters and put them away," Padres manager Bud
Black said of Ross. "They jumped out on some balls that were out of over the
plate. The big blow was the home run."
The Padres took a 1-0 lead in the opening frame. Everth Cabrera led off with a
sharp line-drive double to center, Chris Denorfia's groundout moved him to
third and he came home on Smith's sacrifice fly to left.
Milwaukee answered back in the home half of the first. Scooter Gennett reached
on a line drive single with one out and Braun brought him around with a line
drive into the gap in center.
Davis and Lyle Overbay both singled to left before Segura smoked a line-drive
homer to left, making it a 4-1 game.
"You get some runs on the board, it is big for us to go out and shut down the
next inning to keep the other team down and keep the momentum going," Lohse
The Brewers added another run in the fourth. After working a 3-1 count, Davis
homered on a fly ball to left to lead off the frame.
The Padres got a run back in the seventh. Will Venable singled on a line drive
that was deflected by Lohse with one out. He was then tagged out at second
after Jedd Gyorko grounded into a force out. Yonder Alonso reached on
Overbay's fielding error to put runners on the corners. Hundley's line drive
to center scored Gyorko to make it a 5-2 game.
The Brewers are 13-0 when scoring at least four runs in a game ... Smith
extended his hitting streak to five games ... This was only the second time in
Ross' career that he allowed more than one home run in a game. The other time
was when he allowed three on May 25, 2012 against the Yankees ... San Diego
went 1-for-4 with runners in scoring position and left six runners on base.
