Lucroy drives in three in Brewers’ win
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jonathan Lucroy tied career highs with three hits and three RBIs and Shaun Marcum won his fourth straight decision, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to an 8-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.
Milwaukee built an 8-0 lead off Padres starter Clayton Richard (1-4) as every Brewers starter had at least one hit for the night before having to hold on late.
Lucroy provided 2 of the biggest blows with a two-run single in the second and an RBI double in the fourth. He also singled in the eighth after fouling a ball into the dirt that ricocheted and hit him in the jaw.
Marcum (4-1) had faced the minimum on one hit through five innings, but the light-hitting Padres came alive in the seventh with five straight singles that chased the right-hander.
