The Brewers beat the Padres Monday night using all phases of the game. Milwaukee utilized timely hitting, effective pitching, and spectacular defense.
They jumped ahead in the first on Mat Latos with a one out triple by Carlos Gomez. After a Ryan Braun walk, Latos got Prince Fielder to popup for the second out. Latos then bounced a two strike curveball in the dirt that got away from catcher Rob Johnson and scored Gomez from third. Another walk and wild pitch later, Latos was able to escape with minimal damage, striking out Yuniesky Bentacourt looking to end the Brewer threat.
Rickie had an RBI single in the second and homered in the sixth to lead Miluakee
