Padres knock around Brewers to avoid sweepMay 11, 2011 - 9:56 PM
Cameron Maybin joined Bartlett with four hits and two RBI for the Padres, who banged out 23 hits, one shy of the club record. Ryan Ludwick belted a two-run homer and added a run-scoring single in the lopsided win.
The Padres entered the eighth down a run after the Brewers had erased a 5-0 deficit.
Three consecutive singles by Brad Hawpe, Chris Denorfia and Bartlett to start the frame produced the tying run. After Will Venable advanced the runners with a sacrifice bunt, Milwaukee reliever Kameron Loe (2-4) intentionally walked Chase Headley to load the bases for Maybin, who plated a pair with a double down the left-field line. Headley scored on Mark Kotsay's throwing error for a 9-6 San Diego lead.
"He's got a really good sinker and he got it up in the zone and I was able to handle it," Maybin said about Loe.
Mike McClendon replaced Loe and Ludwick deposited his first pitch over the wall in right-center. San Diego's lead grew to seven on RBI singles by Hawpe and Bartlett.
Padres starter Tim Stauffer gave up a season-high six runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings. Chad Qualls (2-2) tossed 1 1/3 innings of relief to earn the win.
San Diego jumped on Milwaukee starter Randy Wolf for three runs in the first inning.
Denorfia crushed the left-hander's second pitch of the game for his first career leadoff home run. Bartlett followed with a single, swiped second and scored on a base hit by Jorge Cantu. Ludwick drove home Headley later in the frame.
The Padres extended their lead to 5-0 in the third on an RBI double by Rob Johnson, who then scored on an Alberto Gonzalez single.
"[Wolf's] stuff is fine, his fastball is fine and his velocity is there," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. "Every time he made a mistake, they hit it, whether it was a changeup or a breaking ball. They didn't miss anything."
Milwaukee got two runs back in the fourth, as Casey McGehee singled home Ryan Braun and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Yuniesky Betancourt.
The Brewers pulled even in the next inning after Stauffer retired the first two batters. Kotsay walked and advanced on a wild pitch before Braun grounded an RBI single to left. Prince Fielder followed with his 200th career home run, a blast to right-center.
Betancourt clubbed a solo home run to put Milwaukee up 6-5 in the sixth.
